Hello all,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I don't understand why |h|/h will become -1 as h approches 0 from the left. I can see how the numerator becomes negative, as |x| = -x if x< 0, but shouldn't the denominator become negative also since h < 0 when we approach 0 from the left? So why isn't the answer -h/-h = 1?
