Q:
# PLEASE HELP ME I WILL GIVE BRAINLIEST!!!!!!!!!Luella drives her vehicle the same number of miles each day. The number of miles remaining before her vehicle is due for its next routine service is represented by the function below, where x represents the number of days she has driven her vehicle since her last routine service. M(x) = 5,000 - 26x What is the average rate of change over the interval [60, 90]? A. 41 miles per day B. -26 miles per day C. 26 miles per day D. -41 miles per day

Accepted Solution

A:

For this case we have the following function:

M (x) = 5,000 - 26x

We observe that we have a linear function.

The slope of the line is:

m = -26

The slope of the line is constant for any interval.

The slope of the line represents the average rate of change of the function.

Answer:

the average rate of change over the interval [60, 90] is:

B. -26 miles per day

M (x) = 5,000 - 26x

We observe that we have a linear function.

The slope of the line is:

m = -26

The slope of the line is constant for any interval.

The slope of the line represents the average rate of change of the function.

Answer:

the average rate of change over the interval [60, 90] is:

B. -26 miles per day
