Tom fills a pool with water. He used the equation g=5m+14 to model the amount of gallons in the pool (g) and the number of minutes that have elaspsed (m) since he started filing the pool. Find the amount of gallons:

a.) in the pool after 3 minutes

b.) that the pool increases each minute

c.) that are in the pool before Tom starts filling

$$g(m)=5x+14\\ g(3) = 5(3)+14 = 29~gal\\ \text{it should be pretty obvious that the water in the pool increases at 5 gallons per minute}\\ g(0)=14~gal \text{ so there must have initially been 14 gallons in the pool}$$
