Question: i know i could do this the long way and...

Question details

I know I could do this the long way and just punch each value in my calculator, but I would rather put the function in my calculator and get the values on a table, solve slope etc. It's been a while since I took calculus and I cannot remember; can someone please help show how to do this problem as a function? I appreciate it.
