Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0What is the correct order of the functions from least to greatest according to the average rate of change on the interval from x = 1 to x = 3?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0A. f(x), g(x), h(x) B. g(x), f(x), h(x) C. h(x), g(x), f(x) D. g(x), h(x), f(x)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you can do this by finding the change in y divided by the change in x the change in x fro 1 to 3 is 4 , and is the same for all 3 functions i.e. ignore dividing by 4, and just find the change in y can you do that ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1for the f(x) (the graph) can you read the "y" value at x=1 ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yeah it's 1? ..right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1put your finger on 1 on the xaxis, and move your finger down until you hit the line

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Sorry had I quadrants mixed up.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes. now what is the y value at x= 3 ?

phi

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes. y=0 at x=3 and the "change in y" is 0  (2) = 2 (the average rate of change would be 2/4 = 1/2)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1not er 2, you did it correctly the first time.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Let's do h(x) what is y at x= 1 and y at x= 3 ?

phi

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes, and what is the "change in y" ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1i.e. when we go from 14 up to 62, how much did y change ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It goes up by 5, 7, 9...

phi

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1we want a single number. if you start at 14 and end up at 62, how far did you go up ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So the difference is 48.

phi

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes. and the slope (average rate of change ) is 48/4 (the 4 is the change in x from 1 to 3) so far we have g(x) slope is 2/4 and h(x) is 48/4 so g(x) should go before h(x) in your answer.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1now the first one f(x) = (x+3)^2 2 we have to put in x=1 and figure out f(1) (1+3)^2 2 = ?

phi

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1and now for x=3 . can you do that?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Pluggin in x=3? That would be 34.

phi

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1finally, change in y from 2 up to 34 is 32 the slope (average rate of change) for f(x) is 32/4 here is what we have for the slopes: f(x) is 32/4 g(x) slope is 2/4 h(x) is 48/4 now put them in order small to big.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0g(x), h(x), and f(x)?

phi

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1ignore the divide by 4 you have f 32, g 2, and h 48 what is the smallest and which is the biggest? and which goes in the middle?

phi

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1we could divide each by 4, but the order won't change.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0True. I'm all for adventures, just not the one's where I have to figure out how many watermelons Kyle needs to sell (if you get my drift)
