To determine

## To define: The average rate of change of the function f between two points.

Expert Solution

The average rate of change of the function f(x) between x=a and x=b is defined as

average rate of change = change in ychange in x=f(b)f(a)ba

### Explanation of Solution

Given information: f is a function.

The average rate of change of the function f(x) between x=a and x=b is defined as

average rate of change = change in ychange in x=f(b)f(a)ba
