    Answer:

    Average rate of change for the number of African American women who held office at any given time between 1970 & 1993 is   94.43.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Here, according to the question:

    Number of African American women in elected public office in the United States in the year 1970 = 160

    Number of African American women in elected public office in the United States in the year 1993 = 2332

    Now, the change in the number of elected women between 1970 & 1993

    = Women elected in the year 1993 – Women elected in the year 1970

    =  2332 –  160  = 2,172

    or, the change in the number of elected women candidates between 1970 & 1993 is 2,172

    Now, the difference in the time period is 1993 – 1970 =  23 years

    So, \textrm{The average rate of change}  = \frac{\textrm{Total change in the quantity}}{\textrm{Time Interval}} \\=\frac{2172}{23}  = 94.43

    Hence, the average rate of change for the number of African American women who held office at any given time between 1970 & 1993 is 94.43.
