Homework Help: Calculus (Derivatives)

Posted by Mishaka on Tuesday, November 1, 2011 at 2:37pm.

What is the derivative of the this functon?
g(x) = -500/x, x cannot equal 0.

I know that in order to fnd the derivative I need to put the function into the equation for evaluating derivatives as limits.
lim as h -> 0 (f(x+h) - f(x))/h
I did this, but I am having difficulties simplifying it to evaluate the limit. Any help at all is appreciated!
