    h/h = 1, limit of 1 as h -> 0 is 1

    \[f \left( x \right)=\sqrt[12]{x ^{12}}= x, f'\left( x \right)=1 \text{ so the limit is }1\]

    the limit presented is the difference quotient of the function, which will give you the derivative or slope. the function resolves to f(x) = x, with domain, such that x >= 0. the derivative will be 1 for all x>0.
