# For this discussion, use your Excel Build-a-Function spreadsheet to input your third set of data points to evaluate that point on the graph and determine if the two variables are related

Throughout the discussions in this course, you will be exploring a real-world situation that will involve two related factors that can be measured numerically. You will first conduct some research to collect data and then apply what you learn throughout the class about problem solving, equations, and graphing to better understand the relationship between the two factors.

For this discussion, identify a topic that includes two potentially related factors that can be measured numerically. Your topic should be in the form of a question: “How is _____ related to _____” ?

2. Enter the data points in sets of two.
3. Post the slope-intercept form of the equation for your data.
4. Explain how you determined the slope from the two data points.
5. Post the equation that results from your data in the form of a function.
6. Looking at the spreadsheet, what does it predict your third value will be? What does this suggest to you?

PART two:

For this discussion, use your Excel Build-a-Function spreadsheet to input your third set of data points to evaluate that point on the graph and determine if the two variables are related.

Discuss the following information in your initial post:
