To find the instantaneous rate of change of the function ( x^2 + 3x - 4 ) when ( x = 2 ), you need to find the derivative of the function with respect to ( x ) and then evaluate it at ( x = 2 ).

The derivative of the function ( x^2 + 3x - 4 ) with respect to ( x ) is ( 2x + 3 ).

Now, evaluate the derivative at ( x = 2 ): [ 2(2) + 3 = 4 + 3 = 7 ]

So, the instantaneous rate of change of the function ( x^2 + 3x - 4 ) when ( x = 2 ) is ( 7 ).

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.
