    The cans are increasing at a linear rate.

    If you look at the number of cans collected, you will see that they are increasing by 5 each time. Since the rate of change is the same each day, it is a linear pattern.

    Answer:

    Hence, the number of cans collected is increasing linearly.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    The table that represent the collection is given by:

    Day Cans Collectedn

    ——————|———————n

    1 15n

    ——————|———————n

    2 20n

    —————————————-n

    3 25n

    —————————————-n

    4 30n

    —————————————-n

    5 35n

    —————————————-n

    6 40

    The number of cans is increasing by a constant term that is five each day.

    It could be modeled by the function:

    f(t+1)=f(t)+5

    where t represent the number of days.

    the initial amount i.e. f(1)=15 cans.

    Hence, the number of cans collected is increasing linearly.
