Solutions

Chapter 2.4, Problem 10E
To determine

To findthe average rate of change of function between the given values of the variable

Expert Solution

Answer to Problem 10E

The average rate of change of function is 12

Explanation of Solution

Given information : The question is

A function is g(x)=5+12x for x=1,x=5

Formula used :

The average rate of change is defined by f(x2)f(x1)x2x1

Calculation :

The function is g(x)=5+12x for x=1,x=5

Put the values of x1=1 and x2=5 into the formula,

  g(x2)g(x1)x2x1g(5)g(1)51(5+52)(5+12)517.55.55124=12

hence,

The average rate of change of function is 12
