Yeah I left out the extra t. Sorry there.

This means that Δ(Δx)/Δ(Δy) does not exist in mathematics. Are you agreeing? Thanks a lot.

Assuming that by "\(\displaystyle \Delta x\)", you mean "a slight change in x" then \(\displaystyle \Delta(\Delta x)/\Delta(\Delta y)\) certainly does exist. But it is NOT an approximation to the second derivative if that was what you meant.

I mean that Δ(Δx)/Δ(Δy) does not have any physics or mathematical meaning. Do you agree? If not, can you tell me what is the meaning of Δ(Δx)/Δ(Δy)? Sure, you can do any calculation as you want.

Try an example as see what happens. Say x=t

What do you get for x, Δx, Δ(Δx), y, Δy, Δ(Δy) and finally for the ratio Δ(Δx)/Δ(Δy), when t is 1.0, 1.1 and 1.2?
