Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I know that the Mean Value Theorem states that \[\frac{ f(b) f(a) }{ ba }=f'(c)\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yep all it means is that the average rate of change can be approximated to a constant so f(b) in this case is 65 mph f(a) is 50 b is 2:10 a is 2:00 f'(c) is the rate of change parallel to the curve, so in this case: the acceleration ba = 10 mins = 0.166 hours f(b)  f(a) = 15 15/0.1666 =...?
