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?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0average 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...
