Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ok, but I guess it's not perfect or exact lol because f(2)f(1) does not equal exactly 4/3?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1f(2)f(1) doesn't give you the average rate of change

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1"average rate of change" essentially means to calculate the slope between x = 1 and x = 4

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1your function is not linear, so f(2)f(1) does not equal f(4)f(1)
