One of the functions in the table below is linear; the other is not. x 0 1 2 3 f (x) 1.38 1.30 1.15 0.98 g(x) 0.60 0.35 0.10 0.15 (a) (2 points) Which function is linear? Briefly explain your reasoning. (b) (4 points) Find an explicit formula for the linear function. # 1 2 3 4 Points 6 4 4 8 22 Score 2. (4 points) The graph of a function f is given below. On the same axes, draw the graph of the function g(x) = 2 f (x + 1). 3. (4 points) A ship collision in a harbor resulted in a spill of contaminants. Due to the tidal circulation of the sea, their concentration decreased according to an exponential decay function. The initial concentration was 20 parts per million, but after 2 days it was down to 6 parts per million. After how many days will the concentration reach 0.4 parts per million? 4. Let g(x) = 3 x2 . x2  4
