do I get part b by averaging the slopes of iv and v?
@ospreytriple :) continued from the last problem
which is 3.818382
Examine the slopes from part A. As the x-coordinate gets closer and closer to 3, the slopes seem to approach what number? Note that some of the x-coordinates in part A approach 3 from below and some approach 3 from above.
No. You have slopes approaching from below of 4.444444, 4.040404, 4.004004, and 4.000400. You have slopes approaching from above of 3.636363, 3.960396, 3.996003, and 3.999600. They seem to be closing in on what number?
Exactly. That's the answer to part B.
And for part C, you now have the slope (4) and the coordinates of point P so you can figure out the equation of the line.
Er is the equation (part c) : y=4x-16
Correct. Excellent work.
Yay! Thanks. hrm. It says that part a.vii is wrong. I may have rounded it incorrectly o.o
Probably a rounding error. Just double check your calcs.
Yeah that was it.
Thank you :)
