1/h(x+h)^2
1/hx^2
What would you do to make the above rationals NOT be over 1?
There is no other question. I just want to make what I listed to not be over 1.
The original equation that I am solving is:
((1/h(x+h)^2)-(1/hx^2)) / h
I just wanted to make those two parts in the numerator a little bit more simpler so that they are not fractions. How do I go about doing so? Or is there some other way I can solve.
your difference quotient should be ...
it can be rewritten as ...
work inside to get a common denominator ...
expand the numerator ...
combine like terms in the numerator ...
factor out of the numerator ...
divide out the h's ...
if you have covered limits in class, take the limit as and simplify ...
