1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Let f(x) be the function 6x2-3x+11 . Then the quotient f(6+h)-f(6) / h can be simplified to ah+b for what value of a and what value of b? 2. Relevant equations I think I need to simplify the quotient above. 3. The attempt at a solution I know that a=6. I'm not sure what b is supposed to be, nor am I sure what the question is asking me exactly. Perhaps if someone could clarify what I'm supposed to be looking for, it'd give me a push in the right direction. Thanks!
