    Answer:

    \frac{(18 + h) - 18}{(10 + h) - 10} = \frac{h}{h}  = 1

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Given:  f(x) = x + 8

    Interval: [10, 10 + h]

    The function f(x) is an equation of a straight line and can also be expressed as;

    y = x + 8

    *The slope in this case is equal to 1.

    ∴ When x = 10 , y = 10 + 8 = 18

    and,

    When x = 10 + h , y = (10 + h) + 8 = 18 + h

    Average rate of change is equivalent to the slope of the line but we should express it in terms of h.

    So we are finding the rate of change from point (10, 18) to point (10 + h, 18 + h)

    Slope = change in y ÷ change in x

    i.e

    Average rate of change or slope = \frac{(18 + h) - 18}{(10 + h) - 10} = \frac{h}{h}  = 1
