a)Graph the order pairs.

b) What's the difference in value for consecutive x-values and consecutive a-values?
The difference in the x values is 1. It's 1 because it starts from zero and goes 1,2,3,4 etc. To get from 0 to 1, you have to add 1.
The difference in the a values is 4. It's 4 because it starts from zero and goes to 4 and goes 8,12,16 etc. To get from 0 to 4 you have to add 4.

c) In words, describe the relationship between x and a.
The relationship between x and a is that you multiply by 4. You multiply by 4 because you have to multiply x by 4 to get a. Ex; x= 2, a=8You have to multiply 2 by 4 to get 8.

d) What is an expression for a in terms of x?
 An expression for a in terms of x is 4x
