12 lbs per year The average rate of change (in lbs per year) is the change in lbs divided by the change in years: Question 8 0 / 1 pts The table below shows y as a function of x, so that y=f(x). Is f(x) an increasing function or decreasing function? Is it concave up, concave down, or linear? x 0 10 20 30 40 50 60 y 5 10 13 15 16 16.5 16.75 f(x) is decreasing and concave up. Correct Answer f(x) is increasing and concave down. f(x) is decreasing and concave down. f(x) is increasing and concave up. You Answered f(x) is increasing linearly. is increasing. Notice that the size of the increase is getting smaller as gets larger. This means that is concave down. This may be more clear by looking at a plot plot of the points in the table

When t=0, Q=15mg. Q is decreasing linearly at 30mg per hour. When t=0, Q=30mg. Q is increasing exponentially at 15% per hour. When t=0, Q=0mg. Q is increasing exponentially at 15% per hour. When , mg. is increasing linearly, at 15 mg per hour. Question 13 0 / 1 pts A quantity P is a exponential function of time t, that is P=P0at, where a is a positive constant and P0 is the quantity at t=0. Suppose that Use this information to find a and P0 and state the rate of exponential growth or decay. a=2.75, , exponential growth at a rate of 2.75% You Answered a=0.8, , exponential growth at a rate of 80%.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
