Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0We are looking at "Average rate" so in this case, we are differentiating respect to x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay so I should derive it first to just get 4 right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yeah, it is within the closed intervals of [1,5] :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0as you are given y=4x+2 and interval simply put the value of x through interval and get value of y now you can make a graph by putting some more value of x ... by this graph only consider the interval values ans take average of any tow values of y .. does it make sense ../???

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0In a scenario where you differentiate and the value is not within the closed interval, then the value is simply not right, however in this case it is...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So f(5) would be 5 and f(1) would be 1 and when you subtract them you would get 4?
