Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0f(x+h) means where you see the x you add h DO NOT FOCUS ON OTHER NUMBERS

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.05(x^2+2xh+h^2)= 5x^2+10xh+5h^2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1It would be (very much) more clear if everyone wouldn't just write peaces of the problem, but the whole thing:\[\frac{ f(x+h)f(x) }{ h }=\frac{ 5(x+h)^25x^2 }{ h }=\frac{ 5(x^2+2xh+h^2)5x^2 }{ h }\]See? Just keep on writing the complete fraction, simpifying it along the way, until you're done:\[\frac{ 5x^2+10xh+5h^25x^2 }{ h }=\frac{ 10xh+5h^2 }{ h }=\frac{ 5h(2x+h) }{ h }=5(2x+h)\]So finally we've lost the fraction! Sooner or later the question of what will happen if h goes to 0 will be asked. Here you see immediately that leads to 10x.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Of course, you could write the answer also as 10x + 5h
