Accepted Solution

A:

Answer:Option DStep-by-step explanation:Sales of Noralie's jewelry were on a decline for the first four months.After April, the sales started improving.Given the function to represent the sales:[tex]y=\left \{ {{-x+8}\ if\ x<4 \atop {x} \ if\ x\geq 4} \right.[/tex]To find:The table from the answer options that represent the answer.Solution:From the options, it can be clearly seen that value of [tex]x[/tex] is 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12.Let us put the values one by one and then check the value of [tex]y[/tex].[tex]x = 2,\ y = -2+8 = -6\\x = 4\, y = x = 4\\x = 6,\ y = x = 6\\x = 8,\ y = x = 8\\x = 10,\ y = x = 10\\x = 12,\ y = x = 12[/tex]Therefore, the answer table is:[tex]\begin{center}\begin{tabular}{ c c}x & y \\ 2 & -6 \\ 4 & 4 \\ 6 & 6 \\ 8 & 8 \\ 10 & 10 \\ 12 & 12 \\\end{tabular}\end{center}[/tex]
