Please help. I have a question about the secant of a parabola y=x^2 that passes through points A=(2,4) and A'+(2+delta x, 4+ delta y) , find the slope of this secant. I am then given a) delta x =0.01 and b) delta x = E. To answer this do I just sub in the a) and b) values of x and solve the equation?
