 Question 297429: I am struggle with this math problem: Consider the data sets and decide whether the situation represents a linear relationship. Explain your answer. If the relationship is linear, write an equation that models the data. x-time (seconds) 10 20 30 40 50 60 70 80 y-distance 10 30 70 130 210 310 430 570 traveled(feet) I need to determine m & b, as well as find slope. can you help please? I am confused because the slope is not the same between all data pointsAnswer by vleith(2825)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!I think you anwered your own question. You already see that the 'slope' changes between each set of points. So, the data does not represent a linear relationship. So, m and b do not apply
