A linear function is given.
f(x) = 
1
9
x + 5
(a) Find the average rate of change of the function between 
x = a
 and 
x = a + h.
 
 

(b) Find the slope of the line.

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

f(x)= 1/9 x +5
f(a)= 1/9 a +5

f(a+h) =1/9 (a+h) +5= 1/9 a +1/9 h +5

average rate of change [f(a+h) -f(a )]/h = [1/9 a +1/9 h +5 - 1/9 a -5]/h = 1/9


slop is 1/9
