## Answers ( No )

Answer: option c: y = 3xJustification:All the ordered pairs meet that the second number of the pair equal 3 times the first number of the pair:

Here is the proof:

Pair first number times 3 second number of the pair

(1, 3) 3 * 1 = 3 3 => check

(2,6) 2 * 3 = 6 6 => check

(3,9) 3 * 3 = 9 9 => check

(4,12) 3 * 4 = 12 12 => check

(5, 15) 3 * 5 = 15 15 => check.

So, all the pairs meet the rule y = 3x

In case you don’t know your times-3 numbers well enough to recognize the answer right away, you can check the second data point.

.. a. 2^3 = 8 ≠ 6

.. b. 3^2 = 9 ≠ 6

.. c. 3*2 = 6

.. d. 2 +3 = 5 ≠ 6

Only selection C makes sense.
