Hi everyone, I came across this problem in my homework and I'm not sure how to answer it. Draw a geometric interpretation of the limit lim h->0 (8(1/2+h)^8 - 8(1/2)^8)/h Can anyone help? Thank you

Then and are two points on the graph of y= f(x). is the slope of the line through them. As h goes to 0, what happens to that line?
The slope would decrease since the second point (1/2 +h, f(1/2+h) would approach the first point, right? I'm still a bit confused on what it means by "geometric interpretation"
