## pandaecat one year ago Given the function f(x) = 5x, Section A is from x = 0 to x = 1 and Section B is from x = 2 to x = 3. Part A: Find the average rate of change of each section. I‘m justing checking to see if I got it right. But isn't the average rate of change for section A 2 and 50 for section B?

Anyone???

the average of change is the slope, and this slope is same everywhere on this given function, because this function is linear.

(unless it is f(x)=5$$^x$$)

average rate of change is $\frac{\Delta f(x)}{\Delta x}=\frac{f(x_{2})-f(x_{1})}{x_{2}-x_{1}}$ Calculate f(x) at 0 and 1 and use the formula...
