To find the average or mean slope of the function ( f(x) = \sqrt{x} ) on the interval ([0, 4]), you can use the formula for average rate of change, which is:

[ \text{Average Slope} = \frac{f(b) - f(a)}{b - a} ]

where ( a ) and ( b ) are the endpoints of the interval.

In this case, ( a = 0 ) and ( b = 4 ).

So, the average slope of the function on the interval ([0, 4]) is:

[ \text{Average Slope} = \frac{\sqrt{4} - \sqrt{0}}{4 - 0} ]

[ \text{Average Slope} = \frac{2 - 0}{4} ]

[ \text{Average Slope} = \frac{1}{2} ]

Therefore, the average or mean slope of the function on the interval ([0, 4]) is ( \frac{1}{2} ).

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.
