# Look for a pattern in each data set to determine which kind of model best describes the data.{(1, 3) , (2, 9) , (3, 27)

###### Question:

A. exponential.

B. linear.

## Answers

B. Linear

Step-by-step explanation:

If not correct: Sorry UwU

If correct: Brainliest? :)

b. Exponential

Step-by-step explanation:

We are given the coordinates as the data set:

[tex]\bold{\{(-1, 0.5), (0, 1), (1, 2), (3, 8), (5, 32)\}}[/tex]

First of all, let us plot the given coordinates on the xy coordinate axis.

Let us have a look at the values of x and y first.

A pair is represented as (x, y) i.e. first value is of 'x' and the second value is of 'y'.

[tex]\begin{center}\begin{tabular}{ c c } x & y\\ -1 & 0.5 \\ 1 & 2 \\ 2 & 4 \\ 3 & 8 \\ 5 & 32\end{tabular}\end{center}[/tex]

If we plot them on the graph, we get the graph as the image attached in the answer area.

Let us join the coordinates using a curve.

If we closely look at the graph, there is a sudden increase with increasing value of 'x'.

Actually the increase is exponential.

Observing the given coordinates, we can see that they are in the form:

[tex](x, 2^x)[/tex]

i.e. [tex]y =2^x[/tex]

So, the exponential model best describes the data.

Correct answer is:

b. exponential
