If Jake is skiing at 4.5km at week 6 which statement is true?

He is above his goal

He is at his goal

He is below his goal

1 Answer

  • Answer:

    He is below his goal

    Step-by-step explanation:

    see the attached figure to better understand the problem

    Let

    x -----> the number of weeks

    y ---->skiing distance in kilometers

    Looking at the graph of Jake's goal

    we have the ordered pair (6,5)

    That means

    The number of kilometers from Jake's goal for week 6 is 5 kilometers

    and

    In the actual Jake is skiing at 4.5 km at week 6

    so

    [tex]4.5\ km < 5\ km[/tex]

    therefore

    He is below his goal
