a. from -2 to 0
b. from 1 to 3
c. from -2 to 1

please show work

  • calculus-can someone please help me with this ques - ,

    I will do the last one, you do the first two in the same way ...

    f(-2) = (-2)^2 + 4 = 8
    f(1) = 1 + 4 = 5

    rate of change = ( f(x2 - f(x1))/(y2 - y1)
    = (5-8)/(1-(-2)) = -3/3 = -1

    (notice I could have done:
    (8-5)/(-2 - 1) = 3/-3 = -1 to get the same result )
