Average rate of change vs. Instantaneous rate of change

Q:  Let f(x) = 3x² – x

a.  Find the average rate of change of f(x) with the respect to x as x changes from x = 0 to x = 1/16

b. Use calculus to find the instantaneous rate of change of f(x) at x=0 and compare with the average rate found in part (a).
