# Margaret and Donovan are twins. They have each kept track of their heights every year since they were 5.Margaret made a table to track her height in centimeters. (I wrote them as (x, y))(5, 101); (6, 105); (7, 109); (8, 113); (9, 117); (10, 121)Donovan wrote his height as an equation. (h = height; a = age)h = 105 + 4.25 (a - 5)Compare their rate of changes. Who had the fastest rate of growth?A: DonovanB: MargaretC: Both had the same rate of growth.D: Not enough information to determine who had the fastest rate of growth.

Donovan had the fastest rate of growth among the two.

Step-by-step explanation:

Rate of increment of height per year, for Margaret,

= (105 - 101) / (6 - 5)

= 4 cm / year

For Donovan, the equation describing his height (h) as a function of his age (a) is given by,

h = 105 + 4.25 (a - 5)

so, rate of increment of height per year for Donovan,

= 4. 25 cm / year

So, Donovan had the fastest rate of growth among the two.
