    thats is all it is, so if i wanted to calculate the average rate of change between (6, 20.45455) and (2,1.92308) all i do is 20.45455-1.92308)/(6-2)

    oh that is a lot simpler than i was thinking what is this formula for (F(x1,+h)-f(x1))/h

    You can still use that formula to calculate it. It's the same thing
