Is it possible for a company’s revenue to have a larger 2-year average rate of change than either of the 1-year aver- age rates of change? (If not, explain why with the aid of a graph; if so, illustrate with an example.)
The possibility for a revenue of a company showing larger average rate of change for year than either of the year average rates of change.
When function is increasing or rising the slope of the function is positive and greatest where the curve is more slanted whereas when the function is decreasing or falling its slope is negative and it has the least value where the curve is the steepest.
The average rate of change of f is defined by
Where slope is change in function with respect to change in time t.
For example, consider the graph showing slope revenue for year.
Evaluate the slope of the revenue PR from to .
Evaluate the slope for year that is from to
