The last part of Section 10.3 asks you to compute several different difference quotients. Some of the problems ask you to compute

where *f*(*x*) and *a* are given to you in the problem. Here are a few examples from the board.

and

In the examples below, you are asked to compute a difference quotient containing *x* instead of *a*.

In this original calculation, *f*(*a*+*h*) and *f*(*a*) where switched.
