## anonymous one year ago The graph below plots a function f(x): If x represents time, the average rate of change of the function f(x) in the first three seconds is ___.

I can't see the graph, but fund the slope between t = 0 and t = 0 so $slope = \frac{f(3) - f(0)}{3 - 0}$

Here's the graph

ok so what is the value of the graph when t = 0.... its the vertical intercept...

5. campbell_st

when t = 3 the point is (3, 0) find the point when t = 0

6. anonymous

(0,-3) ? @campbell_st

7. campbell_st

no.... where does the graph start... can you give that as a point...(0, ?)

8. anonymous

To be honest I'm not so sure how to do any of this

9. campbell_st

look on the vertical axis... where does the graph start...

look at the graph when x = 0, what is the value of the function?
