Aurora is planning to participate in an event at her school's field day that requires her to complete tasks at various stations in the fastest time possible. To prepare for the event, she is practicing and keeping track of her time to complete each station.
The x-coordinate is the station number, and the y-coordinate is the time in minutes since the start of the race that she completed the task.
(1, 4), (2, 8), (3, 16), (4, 32)
