    The table below represents the atmospheric temperature at a location as a function of the altitude: Altitude Temperature (in thousand feet) (in °C) X f(x) 15 4 20 -6 25 -16 30 -26 The average rate of change of the function between x = 15 to x = 25 is ___degrees Celsius per thousand feet and represents the rate of change of temperature per thousand feet.

    yes rate of change is the slope change in y/ change in x

    they want you to find between x = 15 and x = 25

    degrees for every 1000 ft remember its a ratio

    so for every 1000 feet it decreases by -10 degrees c
