## How do you explain the rate of change?

A rate of change is a rate that describes how one quantity changes in relation to another quantity. The rate of change is 401 or 40 . This means a vehicle is traveling at a rate of 40 miles per hour.

**What is an example of rate of change?**

Other examples of rates of change include: A population of rats increasing by 40 rats per week. A car traveling 68 miles per hour (distance traveled changes by 68 miles each hour as time passes) A car driving 27 miles per gallon of gasoline (distance traveled changes by 27 miles for each gallon)

### How do you compare two linear functions?

Compare two linear functions

- Identify the rate of change for the first function, .
- Identify the rate of change for the second function, .
- Identify the y-intercept of the first function, .
- Identify the y-intercept of the second function, .
- Compare the properties of each function.

**How do you find the rate of change between two numbers?**

First: work out the difference (increase) between the two numbers you are comparing. Then: divide the increase by the original number and multiply the answer by 100. \% increase = Increase ÷ Original Number × 100. If your answer is a negative number, then this is a percentage decrease.

## How do you find the rate of change in Algebra 1?

The rate of change for a line is the slope, the rise over run, or the change in y over the change in x. The slope can be calculated from two points in a table or from the slope triangle in a graph. The slope is the parameter m in the slope=intercept form of a line: y=mx+b.

**What does varying rate of change mean?**

Rate of Change: The speed at which a variable changes over a specific period of time. It is often used when speaking about momentum, and it can generally be expressed as a ratio between a change in one variable relative to a corresponding change in another. Graphically, this ratio is represented by the slope of a line.

### Is rate of change rise over run?

The vertical change between two points is called the rise, and the horizontal change is called the run. The slope equals the rise divided by the run: . If coordinates of any two points of a line are given, then the rate of change is the ratio of the change in the y-coordinates to the change in the x-coordinates.

**How do you find the greatest rate of change on a graph?**

Differentiating the function will give its slope. Since slope is defined as the rate of change, then getting the maxima of the function’s derivative will indicate where it is increasing at the greatest rate.

## Which linear function has the greater rate of change the one described by the equation or the one described by the table?

Which linear function has the greater rate of change, the one described by the equation y = 2x + 3 or the one described by the table? The function y = 2x + 3 has the greater rate of change.

**What is the rate of change in a level math?**

A rate of change is a rate that describes how one quantity changes in relation to another quantity. rate of change = change in y change in x = change in distance change in time = 160 − 80 4 − 2 = 80 2 = 40 1. The rate of change is 40 1 or 40 .

### How to determine which function has the greater rate of change?

Determine which function has the greater rate of change 1.The rates of change are equal. 2.The graph has a greater rate of change. 3.The table has a greater rate of change. 4.none of the above Math please help. Find the function that has the greater rate of change As x increases by 1, y increases by 3.

**What is the rate of change of 40 mph?**

A rate of change is a rate that describes how one quantity changes in relation to another quantity. rate of change = change in y change in x = change in distance change in time = 160 − 80 4 − 2 = 80 2 = 40 1 The rate of change is 40 1 or 40. This means a vehicle is traveling at a rate of 40 miles per hour.

## What does rate of change mean in economics?

Rate of Change. A rate of change is a rate that describes how one quantity changes in relation to another quantity. If x is the independent variable and y is the dependent variable, then.
