(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); is this right??

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

use the limit process to find the slope of the graph of the function at the specified point.

f(x)= (sqroot of (x + 10)), at (-1, 3)

2. Relevant equations

f(a)= f(x) - f(a)/x-f(a)

3. The attempt at a solution

Lim as x-> -1 = sqrt of (x + 10) - sqrt of (-1 + 10)/ x- (-1)

Lim as x-> -1 = sqrt of (x + 10) - sqrt of (9) / x - (-1)

Lim as x-> -1 = sqrt of (x + 10) - 3 / x + 1

thats as far as i could go...

so is that the slope? or do i need to do nething further?
