Your Porsche's gas mileage (in miles per gallon) is given as a function M(x) of speed x in miles per hour. It is found that
3,600x−2 − 1/
(3,600x−1 + x)2.
Estimate M'(10), M'(60), and M'(90). (Round your answers to seven decimal places.)
M'(10) = mpg/mph
M'(60) = mpg/mph
M'(90) = mpg/mph

I will read that as
M'(x) = (3600x^-2 - 1)/(3600x^-1 + x)^2
= (3600/x^2 - 1)/(3600/x + x)^2
M'(10) = (3600/100 - 1)/(3600/10+ 10)^2
This makes no sense
Either I did not interpret your typing correctly, or there is a typo.
Please use ^ to exponents and brackets to establish where the division is.
e.g. is it
(3600x^-2 - 1)/(3600x^-1 + x)^2
3600x^-2 - ( 1/(3600x^-1 + x)^2 ) ?

ok, maybe this is more accurate...
M'(x) = (3600x^-2 -1)/

you plug in 10,60,90 for x
(3600(10)^2 +10)^2 = 0.0002557 round to the seven decimal places also and you do that for each one.
