To determine

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

Expert Solution

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
