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

f(h+1)-f(h)/h. If f(x)=1/x, simplify.

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

1/x+1-(1/x)/h

is the answer 1/h? I am not sure if i substituted this correctly or if I solved this right.

I put 1/x in everywhere there was a f(h).
