Asked Mar 21, 2019

Let h(x)= f(x)/ g(x), where f(−3)=7,f′(−3)=−9,g(−3)=−2, and g′(−3)=1. What is h′(−3)?

Do not include "h′(−3)=" in your answer. For example, if you found h′(−3)=20, you would enter 20.

check_circleExpert Solution
Step 1


The value of f(-3) = 7 , f\'(-3) = -9, g(-3) = -2 and g\'(-3) = 1.

The h(x) is defined as f(x)/g(x).

Step 2


Obtain the derivative of h(x) as follows.

Step 3

Substitute x = -3 in equati...
