Step-by-step Solution

Problem to solve:

$derivdef\left(x\right)$
1

Find the derivative of $x$ using the definition. Apply the definition of the derivative: $\displaystyle f'(x)=\lim_{h\to0}\frac{f(x+h)-f(x)}{h}$. The function $f(x)$ is the function we want to differentiate, which is $x$. Substituting $f(x+h)$ and $f(x)$ on the limit

$\lim_{h\to0}\left(\frac{h}{h}\right)$
2

Simplify the fraction $\frac{h}{h}$ by $h$

$\lim_{h\to0}\left(1\right)$
3

The limit of a constant is just the constant
