To find the average or mean slope of the function ( f(x) = \frac{1}{\sqrt{x+2}} ) on the interval ([-1, 23]), you need to calculate the slope of the function at each point within the interval and then find the average of these slopes.

The slope of a function at a point can be found using the derivative of the function. In this case, you would need to find the derivative of ( f(x) ), which is ( f'(x) = -\frac{1}{2(x+2)^\frac{3}{2}} ).

Then, you evaluate the derivative at each point within the interval ([-1, 23]) and calculate the slope at that point. After finding the slopes at all points, you sum them up and divide by the total number of points to get the average slope.

So, the average slope of the function on the interval ([-1, 23]) is the sum of all individual slopes divided by the number of points in the interval.

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.
