    Still do not understand derivatives

    How do I feel in the blanks I still do not understand derivatives and cannot figur out a formula that would help me estimate the values of this table/

    f'(-2)= 6.0, f'(1)= -2.0 , f'(2.5)= 1.0, f'(4)= 3.5

    What is f'(-1, 0, 2,3)?

    How do I feel in the blanks
    I'm confused on what you're trying to solve, where exactly are the blanks in this table that need to be filled in?

    EDIT: Nevermind, looks like you changed the table and reworded the question.

    Is this all of the given information? I don't think you can make accurate estimates with just this data.
