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

sorry I don't know how to type algebraic expressions, but I'll do my best.

express quantity [ f(x+h) - f(x) ] over h as a single simplified fraction

f is not a variable, it's a function

2. Relevant equations

Question # 1. function of x = quantity 1-x over x

3. The attempt at a solution

umm I don't need answers. I just need to know what to do first. Do I substitute the given function of x in the given equation? Do I add the h to the given function? Like say for number 1, do I do (quantity of 1-x over x) + h??

Sorry I'm asking a noob-ish question. I'm not on my best thinking mode right now, especially that things aren't going my way lately...

Thanks :D
