Answer:

#### Explanation:

First, we can see that the function for this table is linear since each time

Since we have established that the function given is indeed linear, we can use either point-slope form or slope-intercept form to find the function rule. In this case, since we are given a y-intercept

Our first step in this process will be finding the slope:

Since the function is linear, we can choose any two data points, but choosing a data point in which either

Since we are given the y-intercept
