Between which pair of consecutive points is the average rate of change the greatest?

Average rate of change (AROC) can be seen on a graph as the slope of the secant line between two points.

At which point is the instantaneous rate of change closest to

? Instantateous rate of change (IROC) can be seen on a graph as the slope of the tangent line at a specific point.

Which is greater: the average rate of change between

*B*and*C*or the instantaneous rate of change at*C*?Which is greater: the slope of the secant line or the slope of the tangent line?

Which is greater: the average rate of change between

*C*and*D*or the average rate of change between*C*and*E*?Refer to the previous hints.
