Question

During a certain flu epidemic, the total number *T* of patients diagnosed with the flu after *d* days is given in the table below.

d |
0 | 5 | 10 | 15 | 20 |
---|---|---|---|---|---|

T |
35 | 41 | 47 | 53 | 59 |

(a) Check differences to show that these are linear data.

*T* is a not linear function.*T* is a linear function.

(b) What is the practical meaning of the slope?

(c) Find the slope.

(d) Use a formula to express*T* as a linear function of *d*.

*T* =

(e) What would you expect to be the total number of diagnosed flu cases after 18 days? (Round your answer to the nearest whole number.)
