Analyze patterns and relationships

A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z

Overview

See “Graphing Points on a Coordinate Plane” before completing this section.
We can use what we know about patterns to complete the chart below.

 Point x Rule: Add 2 y Rule: Add 4 Ordered Pair (x, y) A 2 4 (2, 4) B C D

For the x-coordinates, we add 2 to each row.
For the y-coordinate, we add 4 to each row.
We list the ordered pairs using a set of parenthesis. Always list the x-coordinate first, then the y-coordinate.

Graphing the Results

Once we’ve determine the ordered pairs, we can create a visual by plotting the
points on a coordinate plane.

 x Rule: Add 2 y Rule: Add 4 Ordered Pair (x, y) 2 4 (2, 4) 4 8 (4, 8) 6 12 (6, 12)

Remember
Travel across the x-axis first.
Then travel up the y-axis.
Use a ruler to connect the points.

Explaining the Results

The line graph helps us visualize the relationship between the x– and y-coordinates. In this example, the y-coordinate is always twice as large as the x-coordinate. Another way to express the relationship is to say the terms in pattern y are 2 times as much as the terms in pattern x. You could also express the relationship as
