1) f(x)=3x^{2}7x+5
2) [itex]\frac{f(x+h)f(x)}{h}[/itex] What is the value of equation 2? NOTE: I'm new to Calculus. I'm trying to self teach by using the internet. Thanks in advance. ;)

The answer is 6x7 to help you, but show what you did so people can tell you what is wrong.

Obviously not: one expression has x alone, while the other has both x and h.
Rather than trying to teach yourself using online sources, you would probably do better to read a book on the subject. Some people praise the Schaums Outlines books, but, really, most introductory books could be very helpful to you. There even several free ones available as PDF files; you can find them by doing a Google search for 'free calculus books'. RGV
