We have the function f(x) = x^2.

The points given to us are (t , f(t)) and (t+h , f(t+h))

or (t , t^2) and ((t + h) , (t + h)^2)

The gradient between these points is

=>[ (t + h)^2 - t^2] / [ t + h -...

We have the function f(x) = x^2.

The points given to us are (t , f(t)) and (t+h , f(t+h))

or (t , t^2) and ((t + h) , (t + h)^2)

The gradient between these points is

=>[ (t + h)^2 - t^2] / [ t + h - t]

=> (t + h - t)(t + h + t) / h

=> 2t + h

**The required gradient is 2t + h**
