Let f(x)=x^3−2x. Calculate the difference quotient f(2+h)−f(2)/h for
h=.1
h=.01
h=−.01
h=−.1
if you can demonstrate how to do one, I will learn to do the rest

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3\[f(2+h)=(2+h)^32(2+h)\]\[f(2)=2^32(2) =84=4\]so the first one h=0.1\[f(2+0.1)\frac{f(2)}{0.1}\]\[=(2+0.1)^32(2+0.1)\frac{4}{0.1}\]and simplify
