    you should do 1 - (1 + 3h + 3h^2 + 3h^3) first

    correct. Distribute the - through [1 -1*( everything inside parenthesis) ]

    correct: \[\frac{ [1-(1+3h+3h^2+3h^3)]-(2) }{ h } = \frac{ [1-1-3h-3h^2-3h^3]-2 }{ h }\]

    but I'm curious: did you originally have to do 1-(1+h)^3 in the top?

    well i have this equation: \[y=1-x^3\] and i need to find the average slope of the line passig through A (-1,2) and Δx=h

    I think before you go any further, there is something that need to be corrected.

    Here x = -1, so you want \[f(-1+h) = 1-(-1+h)^3 = 1-[(-1)^3 + 3(-1)^2h + 3(-1)h^2 + h^3\] \[ = 1-(-1+3h-3h^2+h^3)\] So the top would be \[\frac{ [1-(-1+3h-3h^2+h^3)]-(2) }{ h } = \frac{ [1+1-3h+3h^2-h^3]-2 }{ h }\]

    then the -2 would cancel out with 2
