## Homework Statement

(b) Rationalize the numerator of your formula in (a) to rewrite the expression so that it looks like

*f(h)/g(h)*, subject to these two conditions: (1) the numerator

*f(h)*defines a line of slope -1, (2) the function

*f(h)/g(h)*is defined for

*h=0*. When you do this

## Homework Equations

(0.75^1/2) - ((12-4h-h^2)/16)^1/2 / h

## The Attempt at a Solution

To rationalize the numerator I multiplied the numerator and the denominator by the conjugate, which in this case is (0.75^1/2) + ((12-4h-h^2)/16)^1/2. The numerator simplified to h/16 + 4/16.

the denominator simplified to just the conjugate. What did I do wrong?

Thanks,
