$x~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~y=kx^n$ $2~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~2$ $4~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~16$ $6~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~54$ $8~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~128$ $10~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~250$

Work Step by Step

$y=kx^n$ $k=\frac{1}{4}$ and $n=3$ $y=\frac{1}{4}x^3$ $x=2$: $y=\frac{1}{4}·2^3=2$ $x=4$: $y=\frac{1}{4}·4^3=16$ $x=6$: $y=\frac{1}{4}·6^3=54$ $x=8$: $y=\frac{1}{4}·8^3=128$ $x=10$: $y=\frac{1}{4}·10^3=250$
