When Martha’s brother George spilled milk on her math homework, most of the ink smeared beyond recognition. Martha could only see two points left in her table of values, (5,8) and (12,36). Martha still had to find the equation representing the values in her table, but now, with only two data points, she is not sure she can.

Martha out: either (1) explain what information she needs to determine the equation, and why she needs that information, or (2) explain to Martha how to find the equation representing the data when she only has two points, and calculate the equation for her.

For both options type your answer in the text box. If you choose option 2 show your work for finding the equation in the sketch box.
