so if im asked to find the slope of that equation when x = 1 how do i do that? Also could you please explain where the correction came from. And i really appreciate all your help skeeter. You rock.

Also could you please explain where the correction came from. the derivative of is so, the derivative of is to find the value of the derivative at x = 1, plug in 1 for x. btw ... what you are finding is a derivative, not a differential.
ok now im confused , so i am being asked to 'differentiate' Can you please explain where i begin to 'differentiate' as opposed to finding the derivative?

The process of finding the derivative is called differentiation. So, you differentiated to find the derivative . I thought you wanted the differential in my first post, so forget that ever happened. You will know what differentials are soon enough...
