    Exclamation graphing assignment help plzzz!!

    hey ive got this assignment to do in math and im stuck at this part.
    Height of Drop (m) Number of Drops
    1.7 42.0
    2.0 21.0
    2.9 10.3
    4.1 6.8
    5.6 5.1
    6.3 4.8
    7.0 4.4
    8.0 4.1
    10.0 3.7
    13.9 3.2
    We were given this data. It shows that when a bird drops a nut from a certain height it breaks, along with how many times it has to drop it from the height in order for it to break.
    The problem asks us to plot these points by using technology (i did that. Then it says define all variables and state any parameters clearly.
    After that it asks what type of function models the behavior of the graph?
    (I think its reciprocal, but not sure)

    What does the graph look like? I'd imagine it is a reciprocal as low x gives high y and high x low y

    below is a reciprocal graph thanks to google

    yeah it does look like a recipricol, but i dont know what it means by define all variables and state the parameters. I also have to make an equation that models this data, but i can't use the calculator for it.

    Define the variables mean:

    On your graph , define, m = height of drop ; n = number of drops
