    You can graph at x=3, and x=8 on a graphical calculator and connect the two coordinates and calculate the slope of the line.

    Perhaps you entered the x as something other than exponent?

    Every function gets a slope. You must enter the x as ^x

    f(8) =? f(3) =?

    and then \(\dfrac{f(8)-f(3)}{8-3}=?\) That is your answer.

    \(f(x) = 0.01*2^x\) right?
