**It would be bigger than 1/2 inches because they are simply asking for the difference which is 5 1/2-5= 1/2.**

**Answer: g(x) = 5x+9, second choice**</h3>

Explanation:

When we reflect over the vertical y axis, every negative x value becomes positive and vice versa. So we effectively replace x with -x like so

f(x) = -5x+9

f(-x) = -5(-x)+9 ... replace every x with -x

f(-x) = 5x+9

g(x) = 5x+9

A point like (1,4) on f(x) will reflect over to (-1,4) on g(x). If we apply this to every point on f(x), then all of f(x) will reflect to g(x).

**Answer:**

3

**Step-by-step explanation:**

Find the prime factorization of 81, which is 3 x 3 x 3 x 3. Next, do the same with 48, which is 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 3. Lastly, to find the gcf, multiply the prime factors that are common to both numbers. The GCF is 3
