Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The following limit represents the derivative of some function f at some number a. \[\lim_{h \rightarrow 0}\frac{(1+h)^{10} 1}{h}\] State f and a.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1We have the limit definition of a derivative:\[\large\rm f'(a)=\lim\limits_{h\to0}\frac{f(a+h)f(a)}{h}\] If you match up the pieces with the formula:\[\large\rm f(a+h)=(1+h)^{10},\qquad\qquad f(a)=1\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[\large\rm f(\color{orangered}{a+h})=(\color{orangered}{1+h})^{10},\qquad\qquad f(a)=1\]If you look at this orange part here, you might be able to figure out what your a value is.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[\large\rm f(\color{orangered}{a+h})=(\color{orangered}{1+h})^{10}\]And then if you choose to evaluate this at x, instead of a+h,\[\large\rm f(\color{orangered}{x})=(\color{orangered}{x})^{10}\]you should be able to see what your function is. See if this matches up with f(a)=1 though.
