Recall the conjecture you developed in problem 3-5 and use it to determine the slope function, f ′, for each of the following functions. Homework Help ✎

  1. BASIC CONJECTURE that you should have made during class:The slope function is one-degree lower than the original function.

    ADVANCED CONJECTURE that you might have made during class:The slope function is one degree lower than the original function AND stretched by the degree of the original function.

    slope function =

  1. Refer to hint for part (a).

  1. This one does not require a conjecture - an Algebra I student could do it! This is the equation of a straight line. What is its slope?

  1. Refer to hint for part (c).
