rate of change means slope :) So you want to find the slope for each of the functions.

So what would the answer be?
butterflydreamer
  • butterflydreamer
you're welcome :) Well can you tell me what you got as the slope for each of the functions?
welshfella
  • welshfella
rearrange the functions to the form y = mx + b m will be your slope
welshfella
  • welshfella
B is in that form already y = 6x - 5 so its slope = 6

okay

  • anonymous
how do we solve a,c and d?
welshfella
  • welshfella
well rearrange A to y = mx + b form

Slope = 7
welshfella
  • welshfella
yes now for C you need to see how y increases with unit increase of x as x goes from -2 to -1 y does from -7 to -2 so thats a slope of ?
butterflydreamer
  • butterflydreamer
you might want to use the slope formula: m (slope) = rise/ run \[m = \frac{ y2 - y1 }{ x2 - x1 }\]
welshfella
  • welshfella
yes that will give you the slope from the points on the graph
welshfella
  • welshfella
you can use that for option D
welshfella
  • welshfella
for option C the slope is -2-(-7) / -1-(-2)

-7 for C?
welshfella
  • welshfella
no
welshfella
  • welshfella
how mant units is it from -7 up to -2 ?
anonymous
  • anonymous
5
welshfella
  • welshfella
right and -2 to -1 is one unit slope = 5/1
welshfella
  • welshfella
now to find the slope for D plug in the points (1,3) and (0,-2) into (x2,y2) and (x1,y1) into the formula for m that butterfly dreamer posted
