given the functionf(x)=x^3+3x find the rateof change between the two stated values for x:1 to 2
find the equation of a secant line containig the given points (1,f(1))and (2,f(2))

  • college algebra -

    f(1) = 4
    f(2) = 14

    rate of change = slope = 10

    line containing (1,4) with slope 10 is

    (y-4) = 10(x-1)
