27 Risebrough, 18 Chapter One FUNCTIONS AND CHANGE Visualizing Rate of Change For a function y = f (x), the change in the value of the function between x = a and x = c is ∆y = f (c) − f (a). 26. 27. This line is called the secant line between x = a and x = c. 27: The average rate of change is represented by the slope of the line √ (a) Find the average rate of change of y = f (x) = x between x = 1 and x = 4. (b) Graph f (x) and represent this average rate of change as the slope of a line. (c) Which is larger, the average rate of change of the function between x = 1 and x = 4 or the average rate of change between x = 4 and x = 5?

We have looked at how an Olympic record and the number of farms change over time. In the next example, we look at average rate of change with respect to a quantity other than time. Example 3 High levels of PCB (polychlorinated biphenyl, an industrial pollutant) in the environment affect pelicans’ eggs. 27 Find the average rate of change in the thickness of the shell as the PCB concentration changes from 87 ppm to 452 ppm. Give units and explain why your answer is negative. 00082 . ppm The units are thickness units (mm) over PCB concentration units (ppm), or millimeters over parts per million.
