Draw the secant lines for the four time intervals used in part a). What are their slopes? \end{enumerate} \end{frame} \begin{frame} \Large The cost (in dollars) of producing $x$ units of a certain commodity is $C(x) = x^2 -2x + 10$. \vskip 10pt \begin{enumerate}[a)] \item Find the average rate of change of $C$ with respect to $x$ when the production level is changed from $x = 5$ to $x=7$ and for the change from $x=5$ to $x=6$. \vskip 15pt \item Find the instantaneous rate of change of $C$ with respect to $x$ when $x = 5$. \end{enumerate} \end{frame} \end{document}
