im confused. am i suppose to use the power rule or quotient rule to find the derivative?
do you know how to write the general form for the derivative of f(x)?

It sounds like the problem is asking you to recognize that the given limit is the definition of the derivative of some function. Given \(\displaystyle\lim_{h\to0}\dfrac{f(x+h)-f(x)}{h}\), find \(f(x)\). Then, simply compute the derivative.

yes
im not sure how to start this
Well do you know how to find the derivative? The way the question is stated makes it sound like you've learned some of or all the "rules" for differentiation. In this case, since \(f(x)=\dfrac{1}{x^6}\), you would apply the power rule to find the derivative, and that would be your answer.
right i used the power rule.
Okay, so that gives you \[f(x)=\frac{1}{x^6}=x^{-6}~\Rightarrow~f'(x)=\cdots\]
-6/x^7
Right.
