In Exercises 15-28, compute the derivative function f ′ ( x ) algebraically. (Notice that the functions are the same as those in Exercises 1-14,) [HINT: See Example 2 and 3.] f ( x ) = − 1 x

To determine

To calculate: The value of f(x) algebraically for the function f(x)=1x.

Explanation

Given Information:

The provided function is f(x)=1x.

Formula used:

The quotient formula is used which can be represented as follows:

f(a)=limh0f(a+h)f(a)h

Calculation:

Consider the function, f(x)=1x

The difference quotient formula used to estimate the exact value of derivative algebraically is:

f(x)=limh0f(x+h)f(x)h,

Here f(x)=1x, then

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

Substitute the values of f(x) and f(x+h) in the formula f(x)=limh0f(x+h)f(x)h as,

f(x)=limh0(1(x+h))
