Average rate of change is how much the function changed divided by how much x changed.

Here's the problem: A function is given below. Determine the average rate of change of the function between x = -2 and x = -2 + h.
So what I did was g(-2)= -(5/-2)=5/2
g(-2+h)=-(5/-2+h)= (would this be 5/2+h)
I did this problem a couple of different ways ( I changed around what I thought g(-2+h) would equal) and I have a bunch of different answers. I was wondering if someone could give me the correct answer and explain what they did. Thank you.
