Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@aloud, that would be an approximation of the rate of change

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0however, at the point (2,3) tangent to curve you would have an exact rate of change

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so the rate of change is (2,3)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The way to solve this exercise is to first find the equation of the parabola, followed by the derivative of it and for that you will have to choose a particular x  value.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0What aboyt the reverse, @Hoslos , if you know the derivative at a point, can you integrate to find original function?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Let us find the equation of the parabola, using the formula: \[y=a(xp)^{2}+q\], where x,y is from any coordinate of the graph and p and q are the x and y  values of the vertex, respectively. The first attempt is to find a . Replacing values, we get: \[1=a(13)^{2}+2\] \[1=a(2)^{2}+2\] \[12=4a\] \[a=0.25\] Next we rewrite the equation, by now putting a and the vertex coordinates, giving us: \[y=0.25(x3)^{2} +2\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well, the rate of change will have to end at the derivative, which will mean the change in y with respect to x, @BPDlkeme234 .

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0As for the second part, you differentiate the equation of the formula: \[\frac{ d _{y} }{ d _{x} }= 0.5(x3)\] There it is. Depending on the question, they would tell you a particular value of x runing in the graph. For instance let us say, when the xvalue is 2. The rate of change will be \[0.5(23)=0.5units/time\] Any question on differentiation, please ask.
