Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\lim_{h \rightarrow 0}100+50x4.9x^2 = \lim_{h \rightarrow 0}100 +\lim_{h \rightarrow 0}50x  \lim_{h \rightarrow 0}4.9x^2 \]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes, you can evaluate it, but there's no need to in this case. one of the rules of limits is that you can "split" the limit like it's been done above.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0When I used the limit method to find the derivative of the whole expression, I got stuck, and couldn't find a way to simplify it... can you show me how you would do it without expanding? :/

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1let f(x) = 100 + 50x  4.9x^2 evaluate limit h > 0 for [ f(x+h)  f(x) ] / h that should give the same result (the derivative) as splitting the limit up

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Do I plug in the value I was given as "a" for x on like the second step, or is it proper to keep this out and plug in a number only once I'm done "deriving". This is where I got stuck before, because I kept it out, and then had a bunch of h terms, a bunch of x terms, and then 100. And I didn't know what to do! :(

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yeah, sorry about that! I was given "x=5", as a 'time' for when I'm supposed to analyze for the velocity, given through the derivative of f(x)=100+50x+4.9t^2. I'm supposed to use the limit method to get the derivative as well, I'm not allowed to use the Power Rule.
