a: Determine f'(x) for f(x)=x

b: Determine f'(x) for f(x)=x^2

**Reiny**, Monday, October 29, 2012 at 8:53amI 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
