Writing a Function Rule

You can write a rule for a function by analyzing a table of values. Two ways to do this include finding the values to use slope-intercept form and finding the first difference.

To write a function rule in slope-intercept form, first choose two points on a line and use the slope formula to find the slope. Next, substitute one point into the equation and solve for b.
