    [SOLVED] Finding the Average Rate of Change

    Hi there. I'm stuck on this one.

    Find the average rate of change of f(x)= -3x^2+4:
    a) From 0 to 2
    b) From 4 to 6
    c) From 2 to 5



    Thanks!

    It's just a formula. Is is also colled the "slope" in algebra 1.

     <br />
\frac{f(x_{2})-f(x_{1})}{x_{2}-x_{1}}<br />

    Plug and chug.
