based-on-the-function-d-venus-is-at-its-minimum-distance-from-the-sun-at-time-t-112-5-days-let-pa434

Based on the function D, Venus is at its minimum distance from the Sun at time t = 112.5 days. Let [t₁,t₂] represent the time interval between when Venus is at its maximum distance from the Sun and when Venus is at its minimum distance from the Sun. (i) Use the given data to find the average rate of change of the distance, in millions of kilometers per day, over the time interval [t₁,t₂]. Express your answer as a decimal approximation. Show the computations that lead to your answer. (ii) Interpret the meaning of your answer from (i) in the context of the problem. (iii) Use the average rate of change found in (i) to estimate the distance of Venus from the Sun, in millions of kilometers, at time t=40 days. Show the work that leads to your answer
