    Answer:

    4.80 mm to 2 d.p

    Step-by-step explanation:

    w = f(r)

    f'(r) = (dw/dr) = (0.0218 mm/mm)

    So, for a small difference in rainfall of 220 mm, what is the corresponding small difference in width of leaves in the two forests given.

    One definition of a derivative or a rate of change is that it is the ratio of very small differences in the dependent variable to very small differences in the independent variable.

    Mathematically,

    (dw/dr) = (Δw/Δr) for very small Δw and Δr.

    0.0218 = (Δw/220)

    Δw = 0.0218 × 220 = 4.796 mm = 4.80 mm to 2 d.p

    Hope this Helps!!!
