# 5.3: Follow the Rule 3

Look at the table below. stands for a number. Can you follow the rule and complete the table? In this concept, we will practice using rules to complete tables.

### Guidance

In order to complete function tables like the one above, we can use the problem solving steps to help.

- First,
**describe**what you see in the table. - Second, identify what
**your job**is. In these problems, your job will be to complete the table. - Third, make a
**plan**. In these problems, your plan should be to use the rules to help you to complete the table. - Fourth,
**solve**. In these problems you will solve by completing the table. - Fifth,
**check**. In these problems you will check by making sure that the numbers in the table work with the rule.
