    f(x) = 7x + 8; x = 5

    Are you asked to take a limit? if f(x)=7x+8 then f(x)'=7 If you plug in your value of "5" and take the derivative you get 0. I don't fully understand your question.

    I did the same thing first, I plugged then 5 in then solved it & got 43 but then it wasnt one of my choices.

    Then asked for the derivative of f(x), I belvie the question is worded wrong.

    but what does the x=5 has to do with it?

    nothing! the derivative of f doesn't depend on x. that what it means
