Unformatted text preview: f ( X ) evaluated at that point. Consider for example the nonlinear continuous and differentiable function Y = f ( X ) = X 2 + 4. Suppose we want to know its slope at the point (X, Y) = (3, 13). The derivative of this function is f ( X ) = 2 X , which takes on the value 6 when X = 3. Hence, the slope of this function is 6 at the point (3, 13)....
