The experimental data in the table below define y as a function
of x .

** a.) ** Let P be the point (1, 1.1) . Complete the table below by computing the slope of the secant line PQ when Q is the point of the graph with x -coordinate x_1 .

** b.) ** Draw the graph of the function for yourself and estimate the slope of the tangent line at P

Answer:

0 | 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | |

2.4 | 1.1 | 1 | 1.4 | 2.2 | 3.2 |

0 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | |
