The point P(2, 1) lies on the curve y = √x - 1. If Q is the point (x, √x - 1), use a scientific calculator to find the slope of the secant line PQ (correct to six decimal places) for the following values of x. How do I set this up?

given the two points P and Q, you should be able to write an expression for the slope of the line from P to Q

e.g. given two points \(A(x_1,y_1)\) and \(B(x_2,y_2)\), the slope of the line from A to B is given by:\[slope=\frac{y_2-y_1}{x_2-x_1}\]
