I'm sorry, I didn't even really know what to call this. This is the last question on my homework and I have been at it for about 35 mins. I have gotten nowhere on this one!
Q: Interpret the sentence as a statement about a function and its derivative. Indicate clearly what the function is, what the variable means, and appropriate units for each; then sketch a possible graph of the function.
The sentence is: Health care costs continue to rise but at a slower rate than 3 years ago.
I'm pretty sure that I could get all of the question once I find out what the function is, but I have no idea how to get that! Any help would be greatly appreciated!
