Please Find the difference quotient

f(x+h)-fx/h for f(x)= 4x-9 and simplify

  • Algebra - , Monday, June 22, 2009 at 8:20pm

    put x+h in f(x) to get 4x+4h-9
    then subtract 4x+9 then divide by h

    This is what I got, is it correct? Thanks!

    4x+4h-9+ (-4x+9)/h
    4x-4x= 4h-9+9/h
    = 4h/h
    =4

    Your answer is correct, but it is preferable to place parentheses where they are needed to avoid ambiguity, for example:

    (4x+4h-9+ (-4x+9))/h
    (4x-4x + 4h-9+9)/h
    = 4h/h
    =4
