Misc 1 Find the derivative of the following functions from first principle: –x Let f (x) = – x We need to find derivative of f(x) i.e. f’ (x) We know that f’(x) = lim┬(h→0) 𝑓⁡〖(𝑥 + ℎ) − 𝑓(𝑥)〗/ℎ Here, f (x) = – x So, f (x + h) = – (x + h) Putting values f’ (x) = lim┬(h→0)⁡〖((−(x + h)) − (−x))/h〗 = lim┬(h→0)⁡〖(−𝑥 − ℎ + 𝑥)/h〗 = lim┬(h→0)⁡〖(−ℎ)/h〗 = lim┬(h→0)⁡〖(−1)〗 = –1 Hence, f’(x) = – 1
