# Interpret Graphs and Equations

### Math Models

## Interpreting and Expressing a Table

-How the x-values are changing

-How the y-values are changing

-The starting value

-The rate of change

These are what you need to identify when interpreting table values

As the value of x changes so does the y.

-Example: As the value of x increases, the value of y increases.

- The graph is a linear function with a y-intercept of -3 and a slope of 2/2.

## Interpreting Graphs

Graphs can be represented by different types of functions:
