Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1ok thank you the slope of f(x) can be determined by taking derivative f'(x) =1  3x^2 now plug in x = 0.2 f'(0.2) = 1  3(.2)^2 = 0.88

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so 0.88 would be the slope?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes f'(x) is same thing as slope at point (x, f(x))
