a linear function g models the growth of your hair. On average, the lenth of a hair strand increases 1.25 centimeters every month. 

a. graph g when g(0) = 10

b. identify the slope and y- intercept of the graph

c. by how much, in inches, does the length of a hair strand increase each month?

y = length of hair in cm    starting at 10cm

x = months

y = 1.25 x + 10         slope = 1.25    y intercept is when x = 0 and is given as 10 cm

 

1.25 cm/month / 2.54  cm/inch =~ 1/2 inch/month

 

Here is the graph:
