Solutions

Chapter 2.4, Problem 16E
To determine

To find : the average rate of change of function between the given values of the variable

Expert Solution

Answer to Problem 16E

The average rate of change of function is (2+h) .

Explanation of Solution

Given information :

A function is f(x)=4x2;x=1,x=1+h

Formula used :

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

Calculation :

The function is f(x)=4x2;x=1,x=1+h

Put the values of x1 and x2 into the formula

  f(1+h)f(1)1+h1[4(1+h)2](41)h4(1+2h+h3)3h112hh2hh(2+h)h(2+h)

The average rate of change of function is (2+h) .
