Hey guys, my math prof gave me a problem i'm not sure exactly how to solve.
f(x) = (x+1)^2
I'm guessing the pattern is: [f(x+h) - f(x)]/h
so you would get this: [(x+1+h)^2 - (x+1)^2]/h
and the next step is: [(x+1)^2 + 2(x+1)h + h^2 - (x+1)^2]/h
i dont get how to go from the first step to the second step =/
(i tried to use the math tags but they didnt come out right, sorry for not formatting them correctly)
