**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
