Three ways that we may consider describing numeric change that is important for Calculus can be done in the following ways: Type of Change How Change is Calculuated Units of Change Change output units Percentage Change percentage % Average Rate of Change units of output (A.R.O.C.) per unit input Ex 1: The number of Facebook users in the Eastern US grew from 0.9 million in 2007 to 12.0 million in 2010....
