Two water hoses are pouring water into two separate pools. Alex measures the volume of the water in each pool after different amounts of time and records the information in the two tables below.
Hose A | |
Time (min) | Volume (liters) |
2 | 36.7 |
3 | 55.05 |
5 | 91.75 |
8 | 146.8 |
Hose B | |
Time (min) | Volume (liters) |
2 | 42.8 |
4 | 85.6 |
7 | 126 |
10 | 165 |

In science class, you measure the mass and volume of different pieces of aluminum. You determine that there is a proportional relationship between mass and volume. The data on four samples of aluminum is shown in the table.
Volume (cm$$^3$$) | Mass (g) |
4 | 10.8 |
7 | 18.9 |
12 | 32.4 |
18 | 48.6 |
After you put your scale away, you realize that you forgot to find the mass of one more piece of aluminum. The volume of the piece of aluminum is 10 cm$${^3}$$. Can you determine the mass without taking your scale back out?
