The given limit is a derivative, but of what function f(x) and at what point.

limit as change of x approaches 0 of the (tan(pi/4+change of x)-1)/ change of x.

Please help me I am so bad at these and im so very confused!

What is when ?. - October 22nd 2007, 01:27 PMocmisssunshine
No I have to find what function F(x) and at what point from the limit which is a derivative. which is the tan(pi/4+deltax)-1 all divided by delta x

the tangent of pi/4 is one

Yes. That's what I am getting at. See the 1 in your limit?. The function you wish to find is in front of you.

omg I look over the obvious all the time. Thank you so much!! I always make things more complicated then they have to be.
