pick any two points, say (2,10) and (4,20) then find the slope m = (y2y1)/(x2x1) m = (2010)/(42) m = 10/2 m = 5 Since the slope is 5, the rate of change is 5. If there are units (like miles and hours), don't forget these.

NOPE! It wouldn't! It's best to try 3 or more points just to make sure that the rate of change is constant within all points.
