but instead of f(x)=x^-2, let f(x) = x^(1/2 )

So, I did

[ (x+h)^1/2 - (x)^1/2 ]/ h

But im not sure how to simplify it. What would be my next step? Thanks alot :)

Thanks everyone :)

Thanks, I'm having trouble with sin(2x), i think my double angle formulae, i might be doing something wrong/missing something. Any help? Most appreciated!
