Q:
# John and Raul each bought a plant on the same day. John's plant was initially taller than Raul's plant. Raul's plant grows at a faster rate than John's plant. Which pair of equations could model the height, h, of the plants after w weeks from the purchase?A.John's plant: h=w2+3 Raul's plant: h=w+1b.John's plant: h=3w+4 Raul's plant: h=w+6c. John's plant: h=w2+2Raul's plant: h=2w+5D. John's plant: h=w2+5 Raul's plant: h=w2+3

Accepted Solution

A:

♫ - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - ~Hello There!~ - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - ♫➷ We would want the equation for Raul's plant to give a larger value. Try the value 2 for weeks to find the pair of equations that give Raul's plant a larger value. After trying this, you'll find that the answer is C. Here is how I tried it with the value of 2 weeks:John's plant: h = (2)^2 + 2 = 6Raul's plant: h = 2(2) + 5 = 9As you can see, Raul's plant would have a larger height with this pair of equations so it must be correct. In short, the answer is option C. ✽➶ Hope This Helps You!➶ Good Luck (:➶ Have A Great Day ^-^↬ ʜᴀɴɴᴀʜ ♡
