Calculate the Derivative by Definition

 Description Obtain the derivative of the function $f\left(x\right)$ by using the definition $\frac{\mathrm{df}}{\mathrm{dx}}=\underset{h\to 0}{lim}\frac{f\left(x+h\right)-f\left(x\right)}{h}.$

 Derivatives by Definition Enter the function and the value of $x$ for which $f\prime \left(x\right)$ is to be obtained. $f\left(x\right)=$       (Default value: $x=a$) $\frac{f\left(x+h\right)-f\left(x\right)}{h}=$ $\underset{h\to 0}{lim}\frac{f\left(x+h\right)-f\left(x\right)}{h}=$
