can you help me to find the difference quotient for this problem?

f(x) = 1/3x

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

The difference quotient is :

l =(f(x+h)-f(x))/h

f(x+h) = 1/3(x+h)

f(x+h) - f(x) = 1/3(x+h) - 1/3x = 1/3x + 1/3h - 1/3x = 1/3h

so :

l = (1/3h)/h = 1/3

if you don't unnderstand just ask

i glad to work with you each tim you have any other question just invite me i will give you the best answer ok

Good luck

Thank you very much I will write it out and see if I understand it better :)
