Find the derivative of the function at the given number
G(x)= 1+2sqr(x) at 4
I used the definition of a function for this problem and
I'm stuck here: 1+2sqr(4+h)1+2sqr(4) all over h. I have that fraction and now I am unsure of my next step. Any help will be extremely appreciated.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0$$ \Large {G(x)= 1+2\sqrt{x} \\~\\G~'(4) = \lim_{h\to 0} \frac{G(4+h)G(4)}{h} \\~\\=\lim_{h\to 0} \frac{1 + 2\sqrt{4+h}  (1 + 2\sqrt{4}~)}{h} \\~\\=\lim_{h\to 0} \frac{1 + 2\sqrt{4+h}  1  2\sqrt{4}}{h} \\~\\=\lim_{h\to 0} \frac{ 2\sqrt{4+h}  2\cdot 2 }{h} \\~\\=\lim_{h\to 0} \frac{ 2 ( \sqrt{4+h}  2) }{h} }$$ now multiply by the conjugate
