The derivative is the rate of change. In this case it is the cost per year. I think it should be (b) dollars per year.
17) The function v=f(t) gives the median value of a home (in thousands of dollars) in the metro phoenix area as a function of time in years since 1990. What are the units on f '(t) ?
a)Thousands of dollars
b)Dollars per year
c)Thousands of dollars per year
d)Thousands of dollars per home
e)None of these
I have no clue, I dont get the topic of derivatives at all. Any help would be appreciated.
