A wrestling match has eliminations each round. The table below shows the number of wrestlers in each of the first 4 rounds of the tournament:
Round (x) 1 2 3 4
Wrestlers f(x) 64 32 18 9
Compute the average rate of change of f(x) from x = 1 to x = 4 and identify the meaning of that rate.
A)55; there were 55 fewer wrestlers between rounds 1 and 4
B)3; there were 3 rounds between rounds 1 and 4
C)negative fifty five over three; on average, there were 55 fewer players for every 3 rounds
D)negative three over fifty five; on average, there were 3 fewer players for every 55 rounds

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4average rate of change is the slope of the line use the points (1, 64) and (4, 9)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4slope = (change in y)/(change in x) sometimes referred to as slope = rise/run

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0slope is x2x1/ y2y1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4so the points need to match for x and y slope = (64  9)/(1  4) what do you get

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4so for your question its avg change = (change in wrestlers)/(change in rounds)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4well why not leave it as a fraction.... seeing some of the answer choices are fractions

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you have two points plug the x valule with the x vaule and y value with y

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4so as an improper fraction.. what do you thing the avg change of slope would be..?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4well you had a decimal value avg change = (change in wrestlers)/(change in rounds) = (64  9)/(1  4)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4can you give the answer as in improper fraction

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4change in wrestlers 64  9 = avg change =   change in rounds 1 4 = what do you think the missing numbers in the fraction are..?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4great so you are looking at choices C or D so read the choices and decide which should be your answer

campbell_st

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4but your answer choices don't contain a decimal... that's why I asked you to write it as an improper fraction.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4so you are saying the avg change is \[avg ~change = \frac{3}{55}\] is that the same as you answer above \[Avg~ change = \frac{55}{3}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4well I Think you should choose C the avg change = 55/3
