9th grade algebra math hw, help?(:  bobpursley, Tuesday, November 16, 2010 at 4:16pm
first, find the "velocity function"
cost/time: 4.375/1.75; 10/4; 17.5/7
cost/time: 2.5; 2.5; 2.528 $/hr
Well, the rate of change between the first increment and the second is zero.
The rate of change for the second to last increment is (2.5282.5)/(74)=.00933 $/hr/hr
