Calculus:
How would I justify the relation of f(x), f'(x), and f"(x)? I'm having trouble explaining it.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well given a function f(x) f'(x) is the instantaneous rate of change in the function at any point on the function. f''(x) is the instantaneous rate of change is f'(x) at any point on f(x)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I don't quite understand what you mean? what I'm getting from what you are saying is that both f'(x) and f"(x) is the instantaneous rate of change? that can't be possible can it?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well if you have a function that shows distance travelled on time... the f(x) then f'(x) is the instantaneous rate of change in distance over time...(or velocity) The rate of change in velocity over time is acceleration or f''(x)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1f''(x) is the rate of the rate of change. its like if you graphed f'(x), then the slope at any point would be f''(x)
