We entered WW1 toward the end of the war and the country was not nearly so involved in WW1 as in WW2. After WW1 tough, we were a major nation on the world stage because the arrival of American troops in France was crucial to the allied victory.

Calculus
Oh, if you mean the algebra look at the numerator [ x -(x+h)] = x - x - h = -h
May 21, 2014

Calculus
h is a small increase in x which is allowed to approach zero to get the slope of f(x) at x, the definition of the derivative Definition of deriviative of f(x) is: df/dx = {f(x+h) - f(x) ]/h as h-->0
May 21, 2014

Calculus
What do you want, the derivative? if so f(x) = 1/x f(x+h) = 1/(x+h) f(x+h)-f(x) = 1/(x+h) - 1/x = [ x -(x+h)] /[x(x+h)] = -h/ (x^2 + x h) [f(x+h)-f(x)]/h = -1/(x^2+xh) limit as h-->0 = -1/x^2 which is of course the derivative
