# Pre-Calculus/Trigonometry

posted by .

for f(x)= 1/(x^2-3), find:

a. f(3)

b.f(2+h)

• Pre-Calculus/Trigonometry -

a.

Replace x with 3

f ( 3 )= 1 / ( x ^ 2 - 3 ) =

1 / ( 3 ^ 2 - 3 ) =

1 / ( 9 - 3 ) = 1 / 6

b.

Replace x with 2 + h

f ( 2 + h )= 1 / [ ( 2 + h ) ^ 2 - 3 ] =

1 / ( 2 ^ 2 + 2 * 2 * h + h ^ 2 - 3 ) =

1 / ( 4 + 4 h + h ^ 2 - 3 ) =

1 / ( h ^ 2 + 4 h + 1 )
