Yet another problem for your brilliant minds to ponder!
Simplify (f(x+h) - f(x))/h, where f(x) = 2x+3
Here's what I did, please tell me if I made an error.
2(x+h) +3 - 2x - 3 / h
2x + 2h + 3 - 2x - 3 /h
2h/h

Thank you for your help!

[tex]\frac{2(x+h) +3 - (2x + 3)} { h}[/tex]
[tex]\frac{2x+2h +3 - 2x - 3} { h}[/tex]
[tex]\frac{2h} { h}=2[/tex]

30. a) The graph of a quadratic function has x-intercepts, -1 and 3, and a range consisting of all numbers less than or equal to 4. Determine an expression for the function. (I tried to reverse factor, but I got a positive parabola, not a negative one.)
