Hi there,

To calculate the rate of change, you must find the two differences in measurements.

i.e.

The year changes from 2005 to 2009, so we do 2009-2005 to calculate how much it has changed by (=4 years)

We do the same thing with the price: 13,375-10,880 = 2,495


Then to calculate the rate, we do change divided by time

the change is $2495 and the time is 4 years

2495/4 = 623.75


To calculate the units we do unit of change over unit of time, which is $/year


So the rate of change is $623.75 per year.
