((1/(x+h)^3)-(1/x^3))/8h

= [ (x^3 - (x+h)^3)/(x^3(x+h)^3) ]/(8h)

= [ ( x^3 - x^3 - 3x^2h - 3xh^2 - h^3)/(x^3(x+h)^3]/)8h)

= [ (-3x^2 h - 3xh^2 - h^3)/(x^3(x-h)^3 ]/(8h)

divide top and bottom by h

= [-3x^2 - 3xh - h^2)/(x^3(x-h)]/8

usually this is a limit question, where h ---> 0

in that case this would reduce to

[-3x^2/x^4]/8

= (-3/8)/x^2
