(using the quotient rule)f'(x) = so f'(5) = so f'(5) =
So we just started getting into derivatives in class, and I understand the concept and the formulas. I've read through my textbook several times and can't come across a similar problem. I'm sure I'm just overlooking something I know. But the more I stare at this question the angrier I get because it seems so simple. Also, if you could tell me what this 'type' of problem is, I'd appreciate it.
Consider the function h(x), for which h(5) = 2 and h'(5) = 4.
Let f(x) = h(x) / x. Then f'(5) = ?
Thanks in advance.
Thanks I was trying to set up something like that but I was having issues because the formula given in class for quotient functions was as follows:
and I was getting hung up because the derivative of x wasn't defined. I forgot that it was always 1. Is that a correct understanding? Thanks again so much. You've made my night!
