Medal
A volleyball playoff competition has eliminations each round. The table below shows the number of teams in each round of the tournament:
Round (x) 1 2 3 4
Teams f(x) 16 8 4 2
Compute the average rate of change of f(x) from x = 1 to x = 4 and identify the meaning of that rate.
negative three over fourteen; on average, there were 3 fewer teams every 14 rounds
negative fourteen over three; on average, there were 14 fewer teams every 3 rounds
3; there were 3 rounds between rounds 1 and 4
14; there were 14 fewer team between rounds 1 and 4

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1when x=1, y=16 when x=4, y=2 (this is simply based on the chart) So, your to points are (1,16) and (4,2) are your two points. \(\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1THE SLOPE FORMULA: \(\LARGE \color{black}{ \displaystyle {\rm m}=\frac{\color{blue}{{\rm y}_1}\color{red}{{\rm y}_2}}{\color{green}{{\rm x}_1}\color{darkgoldenrod}{{\rm x}_2}} }\) where \(\LARGE \color{black}{ \displaystyle {\rm m} }\) is the slope \(\Large\color{black}{ \displaystyle (\color{green}{{\rm x}_1}~,~~\color{blue}{{\rm y}_1}) }\) and \(\Large\color{black}{ \displaystyle (\color{darkgoldenrod}{{\rm x}_2}~,~~\color{red}{{\rm y}_2}) }\) are your two points.
