Storyboard Text

  • And now for my final magic trick, I will perform the DIFFERENCE QUOTIENT!
  • First, plug (x + h) into your function wherever you see an x.
  • The difference quotient is f(x+h)-f(x) ------------- h
  • Once you find f (x + h), you can plug your values into the difference quotient formula and simplify
  • In the final step, use the subtraction sign to eliminate the parentheses and simplify the difference quotient.
  • This formula computes the slope of the secant line through two points on the graph of f
  • And that's it! That's how you get the difference quotient!
  • Hmm, maybe I shouldn't have told them. A magician never reveals his secrets!
