In Exercises 13–16 the graph of a function is shown together with the tangent line at a point P. Estimate the derivative of f at the corresponding x value. [HINT: See Quick Example 3.] To determine

To calculate: The derivative of the function f(x) at the corresponding x value from the following graph, Explanation

Given information:

The provided graph is,

Formula used:

The derivative of a function is slope at that point that is m=y2y1x2x1.

Where m is the slope or derivative at that point, (x1,y1) and (x2,y2) are the coordinates.

Calculation:

From the provided graph one can observe that the tangent at point P passes through the coordinates (0,2) and (6,5).

The derivative of the function at point P will be slope of the line at the point
