(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Let f(x) be the function 6x^{2}-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!
