What is the rate of change from x = 0 to x = pi over 2?

trig graph with points at 0, negative 4 and pi over 2, 0 and pi, 4 and 3 pi over 2, 0 and 2 pi, negative 4

Choices:

8 over pi

pi over 8

negative 8 over pi

negative pi over 8

I think the points on the graph are:

(0, negative 4) and (pi over 2, 0) and (pi, 4) and (3 pi over 2, 0 ) and (2 pi, negative 4)

There is the point (0, -4) . So, when x = 0 , y = -4 .

There is the point (\(\frac{\pi}{2}\), 0) . So, when x = \(\frac{\pi}{2}\) , y = 0 .

average rate of change = \(\frac{\text{change in y}}{\text{change in x}}=\frac{-4 - 0}{0 - \frac{\pi}{2}}=\frac{4}{\frac{\pi}{2}}=4\cdot\frac2{\pi}=\frac8{\pi}\)

Here's a graph.
