### Example Question #1 : Understand Linear And Nonlinear Functions: Ccss.Math.Content.8.F.A.3

Which equation best represents the following graph?

**Possible Answers:**

None of these

**Correct answer:**

We have the following answer choices.

The first equation is a cubic function, which produces a function similar to the graph. The second equation is quadratic and thus, a parabola. The graph does not look like a prabola, so the 2nd equation will be incorrect. The third equation describes a line, but the graph is not linear; the third equation is incorrect. The fourth equation is incorrect because it is an exponential, and the graph is not an exponential. So that leaves the first equation as the best possible choice.
