- can you provide some practice questions? I'm studying for my SAT and would like some hands-on work(12 votes)
- So was this graph more of an exponential graph? Instead of a linear or parabolic graph? And would 40 degrees be an asymptote, or would it eventually reach 40 degrees?(5 votes)
- The graph WOULD eventually reach 40ºC. It is an exponential graph though.(1 vote)

- Does anyone have the bluebook here? If yes, is there any way I could get a correction to my practiced tests?? If so, how?(5 votes)
- how was it not a linear graph(0 votes)
- the rate of declining temperature is not constant, it was quick at first then it slowed down near the fridge's temperature.(5 votes)

- how do you find the end behavior of a logarithm graph?(0 votes)

What up, y'all? It's Ceez in the builds

And when I'm in the game, I like to style with my kills

You know that I am the king of Dusty

You trying too hard, boy, you smellin' mad musty

Killin me? You must be mistaken

Because it's yo life, that I will be takin'

Wah wah wah, now you crying to your mommy

But guess what, papi? Now you back in the lobby

Yeet! Ooh! Gameplay real ratchet

Other players in the realm, you know they cannot match it

And when we done, we hit 'em with a dance

I boogie with my feet, then I boogie with my hands

Triggered trash kids when their salt is increased

Sorry, gotta go, double G, double peace

Ahh yeet!

## Video transcript

- [Instructor] Nayeli created
a social media account for her company, and she tracks the account's
number of followers on the graph below. On what interval did
the number of followers increase the fastest? Pause this video and see
if you can figure that out. All right, so when we look at this graph, the horizontal axis is time, the vertical axis is number of followers. So, really, what we're looking for, the interval where we
have the highest slope. So we can just eyeball it right over here, and we can see that this slope right over here
is higher than this slope. And just as a reminder,
slope is rise over run. So every time you increment
your time by one month, how much did you rise? Clearly, we rose more over this interval than we did over this
interval for a month. But then this one over here
is looking really interesting, because just in one month,
we don't have a scale on the number of followers, but it's clear we got a very large rise. And so the slope is the
largest right over here, larger than any other point on this graph. So that's between two and three months. So I am liking this choice right over here.
