how do you calculate the rate of change in a graph?? is it just the gradient??
dextercioby said:Since your "rate of change" sounds terribly vague,i'll assume that it means "the change in <<y>> corresponding to an infinitesimal change in <<x>>",which means the derivative of the function at a specific point.
whozum said:Usually a premise, whether assumed or not, is followed by a conclusion. You didn't address his question :rofl:
HallsofIvy said:Yes, he did when he said "which means the derivative of the function at a specific point." "Derivative" is what us Yanks call the "gradient".
