Question

I am unsure of how to solve this problem. Any help is appreciated. Thank you.

Let
S(x) =
:- 3
Use the limit definition of the derivative to find
O S'(-1) =
(1) f' (2) =
(li) f' (5) =
(V) f' (6) =
To avoid calculating four separate limits, I suggest that you evaluate the derivative at the point when x = a. Once you have the derivative, you
can just plug in those four values for "a" to get the answers.
