Directions: Find the derivaive of f(x) at x. f(x)= 1/(x+2) x= -1 I used the formula f^1(x)= Limit as h approaches 0 [f(x+h) - f(x)]/h And now I'm at [ 1/(x+h+2) - 1/(x+2) ] /h I would appreciate any help.

Do the instructions specify that you need to use the limit definition of the derivative? If not, just use the power rule.
