The point P(4, −2)lies on the curve y = 2/(3 − x).

(a) If Q is the point(x, 2/(3 − x)),use your calculator to find the slope mPQ of the secant line PQ (correct to six decimal places) for the following values of x.

1) 3.9 mPQ=

2) 3.99 mPQ=

3)3.999 mPQ=

4) 4.1 mPQ=

5) 4.01 mPQ=

im so confused! i just started this and my teacher really didnt explain it. can someone please break this down for me?
