Example 3

Raven started a petition for more vegan options in the school cafeteria. The petition is being sent to homerooms throughout the school. She started with 32 signatures on the first day, and she receives an additional 32 signatures every day after. The number of signatures on Raven’s petition can be modeled by the function f(x) = 32x. Evaluate f(3) and interpret the results in the context of the problem.
1. Evaluate the function. 2. Interpret the results. This applet is provided by Walch Education as supplemental material for their mathematics programs. Visit www.walch.com for more information.
