ps, i'm not bagging on you but am attempting to help. if you realize they've given you the definition of the derivative for the function f(x) = 1/x^6, then it's very easy to rewrite as f(x) = x^(6) and then take the derivative

the h is only in there because you using the definition and should not show up anywhere in your answer.
