The table represents a linear function because for every x value there is only one y value. The graph and the table is attached below. The independent variable y is -3 plus five times the quantity of the independent variable. The equation is y=5x-3

Work Step by Step

The equation of the relationship is y=5x-3 because when there is no independent variable, the value of the dependent variable is -3 and then as the independent variable increases by 1, the dependent variable increases by 5 and so the slope is 5 and the y-intercept is -3.
