    maybe reducing it all to just one fraction might help

    \[\huge \frac{ \frac{ 4-2(2+2h) }{ 2+2h } }{h }\]

    \[\huge \lim_{h \rightarrow 0}\frac{\frac{4}{2+2h}-2}{h}\] is the same as \[\huge \lim_{h \rightarrow 0}\frac{\frac{4}{2+2h}-\frac{2(2+2h)}{2+2h}}{h}\] and further... \[\huge \lim_{h \rightarrow 0}-\frac{\frac{4h}{2+2h}}{h}\]

    Now reduce it to one fraction, and do any cancellations, if possible

    why is it \[\frac{ 4x }{ 2+2h }\]

    Looked at your first post... Ok, then \[\huge \lim_{h \rightarrow 0}\frac{\frac{4}{2+h}-2}{h}\]\[\huge \lim_{h \rightarrow 0}\frac{\frac{4}{2+h}-\frac{2(2+h)}{2+h}}{h}\] \[\huge \lim_{h \rightarrow 0}\frac{\frac{4}{2+h}-\frac{4+2h}{2+h}}{h}\]

    yup limit approaches to -2 as x approaches to zero

    @mark_o. You might want to reconsider..., given that there was a correction; it's 2+h, not 2+2h as was in the first post.

    |dw:1350450481516:dw| why do i get this :S this doesnt make sense because that would mean the answer is zero

    You were to multiply \[\frac{2+h}{2+h}\] to the -2 in the numerator; not to the entire fraction.

    that among other things... But yeah, multiply the \[\frac{2+h}{2+h}\] only to the -2, and redo your work...

    We're not to get rid of it, only to make it simpler, ie, only one fraction bar.

    ok... I think I know where you're getting at... Be careful, the way you wrote it is full of... difficulties. On top, you should have 4 - (4 + 2h) Groupings can make a world of difference, so you better specify which operations are prioritised...

    Not to mention you may have ignored and/or forgotten that there is another h in the denominator. Careful...
