Is $g=\{(1,1),(2,3),(3,5),(4,7)\}$ a function?If g is described by $g(x)=\alpha x+\beta$,then what value should be assigned to $\alpha\;and\;\beta.$

$\begin{array}{1 1} \alpha =1 \qquad \beta =-1 \\ \alpha =2 \qquad \beta =-1 \\ \alpha =2 \qquad \beta =-2 \\ \alpha =-1 \qquad \beta =-1 \end{array} $

Can you answer this question?

  • We find values for $\alpha$ and $\beta$ such that $b=\alpha a+\beta$ for all or ordered pairs $(a,b) \in g$
$g=\{(1,1),(2,3),(3,5)(4,7)\}$ is a function
we see that
If $g(x)=2x-1$ is satisfied for all values of $x =\{1,2,3,4\}$
$g(1)=2 \times 1-1=1$
$g(2)=2 \times 2-1=3$
$g(3)=2 \times 3-1=5$
$g(4)=2 \times 4-1=7$
Hence $ \alpha =2 \qquad \beta =-1$
