Remember the conjecture developed in problem 3-5 and find the slope function, f ′(x), for each of the following functions. Homework Help ✎
f(x) = x9
f(x) = x13
f(x) = 2x
f(x) = 6
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 = 9x8

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?
Refer to hint for part (c).
