## Homework Equations

## The Attempt at a Solution

(x+h)

^{2}+2-(x

^{2}+2)

x

^{2}+xh+h

^{2}+2-x

^{2}-2

[STRIKE]x

^{2}[/STRIKE]+xh+h

^{2}[STRIKE]+2[/STRIKE][STRIKE]-x

^{2}[/STRIKE][STRIKE]-2[/STRIKE]

(xh+h

^{2})/h

(x[STRIKE]h[/STRIKE]+h

^{[STRIKE]2[/STRIKE]})/[STRIKE]h[/STRIKE]

x+h

This answer was not a given choice. Any ideas where I'm messing up?

(I'm sure I making stupid mistake somewhere that I'm overlooking)
