## Homework Statement

Fore each of the following functions, find the expression for [ f(x+h) - f(x)] / h. Simplify each of your expressions far enough so that plugging in h=0 would be allowed.

...

(f). f(x) = √(x-1) (Hint: Rationalize the numerator)

## Homework Equations

Nothing, really.

## The Attempt at a Solution

So a friend of mine asked me this question and I couldn't really figure it out. If you can, show me the simplification process.

I can get it to (x+h-1)/(h√(x+h-1)) - (x-1)/(h√(x-1))
