Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3pick 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.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0NOPE! 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.
