  1. g(-1+h) = (-1+h)^2 - 7(-1+h) + 5
    = 1 - 2h + h^2 + 7 - 7h + 5
    = h^2 - 9h + 13

    g(-1) = 1 + 7 + 5 = 13

    ( g(-1+h) - g(-1) )/h = (h^2 - 9h + 13 - 13)/h
    = h - 9

    How would you tell if an equation is a funtion or not. I know that it has to have only one y-value for every x...but how do you identify this in an equation (rather than a graph) ie. y=1/2x-7 (how do i tell if this is a funtion or

    The amount A(gms) of radioactive plutonium remaining in a 20gm sample after t days is given by: A = 20 * (1/2)^t/140 At what rate is the plutonium decaying when t = 2 days. I think you need to find dA/dt and evaluate it at t=2
