Find the lim as h approaches 0 of (sqrt(16 + h) + 4) / h.


Find the {eq}\lim_{h \to 0} \frac{\sqrt{16+h}+4}{h} {/eq}.

Limit Function:

The general formula of limit for a function {eq}g(x) {/eq} can be shown as below;

{eq}\mathop {\lim }\limits_{h \to 0} \dfrac{{g\left( {x + h} \right) - g\left( x \right)}}{h} {/eq}

Where, {eq}g(x+h) {/eq} can be found by replacing the term x with {eq}x+h {/eq} in the given function. This formula also tells the differentiability of the function.
