    Red face [SOLVED] Hard difference quotient problem for me *pic*

    http://i46.tinypic.com/28i7wuh.jpg

    So with the typical:

    F(a+h) - F(a)
    ____________
    (h)

    I did two trials of:

    F(1993 + 33) - F(1993) / 33

    and

    F(2026 + 6) - F(2026) / 6




    Is that the right method? Please help, thank you.
