At t equals zero or d of zero is one and d of one is two, so our distance has increased by one meter, so we've gone one meter in one second or we could say that our average rate of change over that first second from t equals zero, t equals one is one meter per second, but let's think about what it is,... Hi Tom, You are correct, the expression "the rate of change of y with respect to x" does mean how fast y is changing in comparison to x. In your example of velocity, if y is the distance travelled in miles, and x is the time taken in hours then y/x is the average velocity in miles per hour.

Mar 14, 2018 · Multiply the rate of change by 100 to convert it to a percentage. In the example, 0.4 times 100 calculates a midpoint percent change of 40 percent. Unlike the straight-line method, if you reversed the values such that the population decreased from 150 to 100, you get a percent change of -40 percent, which only differs by the sign.
