**The 2014 Ebola Outbreak** In the first 6 months of the 2014 Ebola outbreak, the total number of reported cases could be approximated by

Where *t* is time in months since April 1, 2014.^{51}

**a.** Calculating the average rate of change of

and

**b.** What kind of model would best describe the successive rates of change obtained in part (a): linear, quadratic, or exponential? What does your answer tell you about the 2014 Ebola outbreak?

Expert Solution

**(a)**

To determine

**To calculate:** The average rates of change of

over the two-month periods

if the total number of cases of Ebola is given by the equation

where *t* is time in months since April

**Given Information:**

The total number of cases of Ebola is given by the equation

where *t* is time in months since April

and the intervals are

**Formula used:**

Average rate of change of

over the interval

is:

**Calculation:**

Consider that the total number of cases of Ebola is given by the equation

where *t* is time in months since April

and the intervals are

Now, apply the average rate of change formula for the interval

Now, try to find

Now, substitute the value

in the function:

Now, substitute the value

in the function:

Substitute the values in the equation,

Now, apply the average rate of change formula for the interval

Now, find

Substitute the value

in the function:

Substitute the value

in the function:

Substitute the values in the equation,

Expert Solution

**(b)**

To determine

The model that would best describe the successive rates of change obtained in part

and to explain what the answer says about the Ebola outbreak if the total number of cases of Ebola is given by the equation

where *t* is time in months since April
