What is difference quotient?

The difference Quotient Method is also known as Fermat’s difference quotient or Newton’s Quotient.

It is used to determine the slope of the line between two points.

Formula to calculate the slope “m”

m = [f(x+h)-f(x)]/ h

It is a measure for over an interval the average rate of change of the function and the limit is the instantaneous rate of change.
