okay... could someone show me how to find the derivative of 5/(x^2/5) using ONLY the definition of a derivative( (f(x+h)-f(x))/h as h approaches 0), and not using any of the rules or proving the rules(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

strictly algebraicly...(probably spelled that wrong)
