How do I find the difference quotient? I already have the function of x and the equation and the restriction. How do I start?

\(f(6)=5\) so we keep that number

then compute \[f(6+h)=5+6(6+h)-(6+h)^2\] to get \[5+36+6h-(36+12h+h^2)\] \[=5-6h-h^2\] then subtract 5 so that \(f(6+h)-f(6)=-6h-h^2\) divide by \(h\) and get \(-6-h\)

so i don't divide by H until i have plugged in both 6+h and 6 and simplified both? @satellite73

smart way : f(x) = 5+6x-x^2 f'(x) = 6-2x if u want find value of f'(6), u just plug in x=6 into f'(x) so, f'(6)=6-2(6)=6-12= ????????? but if u want using limit's method, like @satellite73 said

you do not divide by \(h\) until the end one reason is that you cannot divide by \(h\) until you have simplified the numerator so that everything without an \(h\) in it is gone
