Find the average rate of change of the function from x = 3 to x = 6. f(x) = 10x2 + x

Identify the rate of change (slope) and the vertical intercept f(x) = 8 − 9x if y = −15 1)Slope=?? 2)Vertical intercept (x, y) =??

Jessa is given the points (4, -1) and (-2, 3). She needs to find the rate of change between these two points.

the particle is moving along the curve y=sqrtx. As the particle passes through the point(4,2) its x-coordinate increases at a rate of 3cm/s. How fast is the distance from the particle to the...

The distance, d(t), n meters, the rock travels after t seconds can be modeled by the function d(t) = 0.8t^2. what is the average rate of chage, in meters per second, of the rock betwen 5 and...

A very large tank initially contains 15 gallons of saltwater containing 6 pounds of salt. Saltwater containing 1 pound of salt per gallon is pumped into the top of the tank at a rate of 2 gallons...

A parallelogram OPQR with the points O(0,0) P (x,0) Q (2x,y) R (x,y). Given that Q lies on the line y = 2x + 1 and x increases at a rate of 1.2 units per second, find b: the rate of...

HAving trouble figuring out how to do this one... need help just rate of change

I need to identify the equation and the rate of change.

Whats the rate of change?

y = √x

So you have to find the average rate of change in meters p/s
