Use the four-step process to find the slope of the tangent line to the graph of the given function at any point.
f(x) = 16 - 10 x
Step 2: f(x + h) - f(x) =

Step 4: f'(x) = lim(h->0)(f(x + h)- f(x))/h =

  • Calculus -

    -10(x+h) + 16 -(-10x +16)/h
    (-10x -10h +16 + 10x -16)/h
    -10h/h
    lim(h->0) = -10
