What is the visual representation of the average rate of change f(x) = x 2 from x = 1 to x = 3  _____________ ?


Expert Answer

Step 1

Given function: f(x) = x2
To find the average rate of change of function from point x=1 to x=3

Step 2

The curve of f(x) = x2 is given below, where the vertical axis represents f(x) and horizontal axis represent x.

Step 3

Mathematically, average rate of change of function is given by small change of f(x) divided by change in x where x changes from x1 to x2.

In the graph of f(...
