I hope this is my last question of the day.
I found the derivative of a function, and now part 2 of the question is asking me to talk about the rate of change over a specific interval of time (ex. 10 minutes).
What is the question asking me to do?
Do I just sub in times into the derivative or is there another method?
The function increases rapidly, peaks, and gradually decreases. I determined that by graphing the function.
But the question never asked me to graph it.
So would I comment on the rate of change then by determining the rate of change over shorter intervals (ex. 1-4 minutes, 5 minutes, then 6-10 minutes) or something like that, and put into words how it's great, peaks, and then decreases?
