    Simple slope problem, confused about wording



    Can anyone help me out with this problem? What does it exactly mean by "left hand slope"?

    Here's what I've done:

    (6939-6653)/10 = 28.6
    (7231-6939)/10 = 29.2

    29.2 + 28.6 / 2 = 28.9 so this is the slope of the tangent or am I missing something?
