Expert Solution

Answer to Problem 5T

The average rate of change is 5 ,

Explanation of Solution

Given information:

The function is f(t)=t22t

To find the average rate of change between t=2 and t=5

Formula used:

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

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

Calculation:

  Average rate of change =f(5)f(2)52=(522×5)(222×2)3=(2510)(44)3=153=5
