Rate of Change of a Function Represented by a Table of Values - Examples, Exercises and Solutions

The rate of change of a function represented by a table of values allows us to compare the variation of the values of X X (the independent variable of the function) with the variation of the values of Y Y (dependent variable of the function). This comparison enables us to determine if the intervals are fixed or not, and, consequently, if the rate of change is constant or not.
