Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1hmmm do you mean \[ \frac{f(a+h)f(a)}{(a+h)a}\]

nincompoop

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1that is the definition of derivative @swissgirl YES :D

nincompoop

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so you're left with \[f'(x)=\frac{ \sqrt }{ h }\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Just btw my definition is not complete. This is the correct definition \[ \lim_{h \to 0}\frac{f(a+h)f(a)}{(a+h)a}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[f'(x)=\lim_{h \rightarrow 0} \frac{ \sqrt{(x+h)4} (\sqrt{x4})} { h }\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I didn't want to pick on you, @swissgirl LAUGHING OUT LOUD but yes. without the limit would be the MVT or the mean value theorem

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Ok so basically the next step would be to multiply by the conjugate. Gonna write it out and scan it in cuz it will take me forever to type it in latex

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I tried, omg that thing takes forever using the equation tool bar

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you know at a glance, I thought it is not differentiable because it involves imaginary number and when that is the case, there's no limit with real number, hence no derivatives.

swissgirl

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1no there is a derivative just rewriting it.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Ya I am great at bargaining and I managed to still get warranty coverage after the warranty was over for a year and I complained that the scanning was slow so they sent me a newer model printer which works awesome
