Rate of change of a function f(x) at any point is given by the first derivative of that point.

Since this is a linear function you should have only one rate of change at every point and it is given by the first derivative of the function.

`g(x) = 2x-3`

`g'(x) = 2`

**As said earlier we have only one rate of change. It is 2.**
