We can see the diff quotient approaches 40000

g(x) =1/x

Tangent x= 1 and x= -2

Slope of tangent at x=1 is g’(x) at x=1

g’(x) = -1/x2 ;  g’(1) = -1

g’(-2) = -1/(-2)2  =-1/4

Equation of the tangent at x=1  and y =1/x =1is

(y-1)= -1(x-1)

y-1+x-1=0

y+x =2

or y =-x+2

Equation of the tangent at x= -2 and y =-1/2 is

(y-(-1/2)) = -1/4(x-2)

y+1/2 = -1/4 *x+1/2

y = -x/4

 [ f(1+h)-f(1)]/h   = [1/(1+h) -1] /h

    =(1-(h+1))/[h(h+1)]= -h/[h(h+1)] =-1/(h+1) -> -1 as h->0

[ f(-2+h)-f(-2)]/h   = [1/(-2+h) -1/(-2)] /h

    = [1/(-2+h) +1/2] /h

=(2+1(-2+h))/[2(-2+h]= h/[h[2(-2+h)] =

-1/[2(-2+h)] -> -1/4  as h->0
