Karma baked 48 cookies yesterday. Every hour, she bakes another batch of 12 cookies. What is the rate of change for the scenario described?

    Your question makes no sense.

    It goes from the past to the present and the question is vague.

    Every 4 hours she makes 48 cookies. So we can make a rate of 4:48 equal to 1:12, Does that help?

    The existing 48 is the starting point, so they put it in there to confuse you. The starting point has nothing to do with the rate of change.

    Also, rate of change means slope

    Rate of change is the slope.

    Just like @Black_ninja123 I think it is 4, @ccchristian1,

    No, it is not 4.

    If the rate of change was 4 then in 1 hour they would make another 4, so yes, your original answer ccchristian1 (12) was correct.
