An accurate Math input output table consists of ordered pairs that correctly follow a specific rule. It is also known as a function table. People can determine missing values in the table by identifying the number pattern using the values given.
To determine the rule of an input output table, students should look for the pattern from the input number to the output number. For example, if the input numbers are 6, 10 and 15, and the associated output numbers are 10, 14 and 19, then the rule is "add 4." Students can use this rule to complete any missing numbers in the table. For example, an input number of 20 should have the output number of 24.
