Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2to find rate of change, take a derivative f'(x) then set up the equation "the derivative at x = c is twice the derivative at x = 1" f'(c) = 2 * f'(1)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2let me see f'(x) = 1/2(x)^(1/2) = 1/(2 sqrt x) f'(c) = 1/(2 sqrt c) f'(1) = 1/2 f'(c) = 2 * f'(1) = 2 * 1/2 = 1 f'(c) = 1 = 1/ (2 sqrt c) 2 sqrt c = 1 sqrt c = 1/2 c = 1/4 yes
