    \[\huge f'\quad (x)\quad =\lim _{ x\rightarrow 0 } \frac { f(x+\triangle x)-f(x) }{ \triangle x } \] \[\huge \quad =\lim _{ x\rightarrow 0 } \frac { \frac { 1 }{ 2 } (x+\triangle x)-\frac { 3 }{ 5 } -\{ \frac { 1 }{ 2 } x-\frac { 3 }{ 5 } \} }{ \triangle x } \] What will be after this

    first of all the limit would be h->0 !! then u cancel,x/2 and 3/5 in numerator.....

    First principle: \[f'(x) =\lim_{Δ x \rightarrow 0}\frac{f(x+Δ x)-f(x)}{Δ x}\] When \(f(x) = \frac{1}{2}x - \frac{3}{5}\), \[f'(x) =\lim_{Δ x \rightarrow 0}\frac{[\frac{1}{2}(x+Δ x)-\frac{3}{5}]-(\frac{1}{2}x - \frac{3}{5})}{Δ x}\] \[=\lim_{Δ x \rightarrow 0}\frac{\frac{1}{2}x+\frac{1}{2}Δ x-\frac{3}{5}-\frac{1}{2}x + \frac{3}{5}}{Δ x}\] \[=\lim_{Δ x \rightarrow 0}\frac{\frac{1}{2}Δ x}{Δ x}\] \[=\lim_{Δ x \rightarrow 0}\frac{\frac{1}{2}\cancel{Δ x}}{\cancel{Δ x}}\] \[=\lim_{Δ x \rightarrow 0}\frac{1}{2}\] \[=...\] Wow!
