(Section 1.11: Limits and Derivatives in Calculus) 1.11.3 Below, we let x approach a Below, we let x approach a from the right x ± a + () . from the left x ± a ² . ( S e e F o o t n o t e 2 . ) • We define the slope of the tangent line to be the (two-sided) limit of the difference quotient as x approaches a , if that limit exists. • We denote this slope by ± fa , read as “ f prime of (or at) a .” ± , the derivative of f at a , is the slope of the tangent line to the graph
