#1**+2 **

The average rate of change is the change in rise over the change in run

\(Average\;rate \; of \;change=\frac{0-4}{2-0}=-2\)

So yes he is right.

------------------------

\(f(x)=x^2-4x+6\\ f(x)-6=x^2-4x\\ f(x)-6+(\frac{-4}{2})^2=x^2-4x+(\frac{-4}{2})^2\\ f(x)-6+4=x^2-4x+4\\ f(x)-2=(x-2)^2\\ \)

The vertex is the minimum and it is at (2,2)
