1 MATH 140B QUIZ#4 Due: Friday Sept 21, 2007 Print Name: Instructor: Dr. Fabbri Duration: 15 minutes 1. This exercise uses the familiar formula: f ( x ) = lim h 0 b f ( x + h ) - f ( x ) h B . Consider the function f ( x ) = x x - 3 . [ 3 ] a) Compute the simplifed diFerence quotient f ( x + h ) - f ( x ) h . Show all your work. f ( x + h ) f ( x ) h = [ 2 ] b) Compute the limit as h approaches 0 of your answer in part a) and put your answer on the line provided. f ( x ) = [ 1 ] c) Use your answer to part b) above to ±nd f (1) . f (1) =
