Answer:
He is below his goal
Stepbystep explanation:
see the attached figure to better understand the problem
Let
x > the number of weeks
y >skiing distance in kilometers
Looking at the graph of Jake's goal
we have the ordered pair (6,5)
That means
The number of kilometers from Jake's goal for week 6 is 5 kilometers
and
In the actual Jake is skiing at 4.5 km at week 6
so
[tex]4.5\ km < 5\ km[/tex]
therefore
He is below his goal
