# b The figure shows the percent of the U.S. population that was foreign-born for selected years from 1910 and projected to 2020.(a) Use the figure to find the average rate of change in the percent of the U.S. population that was foreign- horn from 1960 to 2020. Interpret your result.(b) From the figure, determine for which two consecutive data points the average rate of change in the percent of foreign-born was (i) closest to zero and (ii) furthest from zero.Foreign-Born Population Percent:1910-2020

(a)

To determine

To calculate: The average rate of change in percent of U.S. population from 1960 to 2020. The graph is given as; Explanation

Given Information:

The graph is given as;

Formula used:

If a function f(x) is defined in the interval [a,b], then its average rate of change is given by the formula,

Average rate of change=f(b)f(a)ba

Calculation:

Consider the provided statement,

The graph is given as

(b)

To determine

To calculate: The consecutive data points for which the average rate of change in percent of U.S. population is closest and furthest from zero. The graph is given as ### Still sussing out bartleby?
