Textbook Problem

In Exercises 41-46, let x and f(x) represent the given quantities. Fix x = a and let h be a small positive number, of the quantities f ( a + h )   −   f ( a ) h and lim h → 0 f ( a + h )   −   f ( a ) h 41. x     denotes     time,     and f(x)     denotes the population of seals at time x.

To determine

To explain: The interpretation of the given function when x denotes the time and f(x) denotes the population of seal at time x.

Explanation

The given function is,

f(a+h)f(a)h (1)

Function with limit is,

limh0f(a+h)f(a)h (2)

Where, h is the small positive number of the quantity
