1. For a differentiable function f, f' be the funcyion defined by f'(x) lim h>0 =f(x+h)f(xh)/(h)
a: Determine f'(x) for f(x)=x
b: Determine f'(x) for f(x)=x^2

I will do the 2nd one, ....
f'(x) = lim ( (x+h)^2  x^2 )/h , as h > 0
= lim (x^2 + 2xh + h^2  x^2)/h
= lim (2xh + h^2)/h , as h >0
= lim 2x + h , as h > 0
= 2x
for the 1st one, you should get 1
