Will try not to waste time and get right to my question (thank you for taking it).

If f(x)=(2x-3)/(4x+5) (parenthesis added for clarity) find f'(x)

Sorry about the delay, but I just managed to get to this question.

If f(x) = g(x)/h(x), then f'(x) { without the (x) for each function } = [hg'-gh']/h^2.

Since g(x) = 2x-3, it is easily seen that g'(x)=2.

Since h(x) = 4x+5, it is easily seen that h'(x)=4.

Putting these into [hg'-gh']/h^2 gives [2(4x+5) - 4(2x-3)](4x+5)^2.

That is, (8x + 10 - 8x + 12)/(4x+5)^2, which reduces to 22/(4x+5)^2.

Any kind of calculus question you want. I also have answered some questions in Physics (mass, momentum, falling bodies), Chemistry (charge, reactions, symbols, molecules), and Biology (reproduction, insusion of chemicals into bloodstream).

Experience in the area: I have tutored students in all areas of mathematics since 1980.
Education/Credentials: BSand MS in Mathematics from Oregon State University, where I completed sophomore course in Physics and Chemistry. I received both degrees with high honors.
Awards and Honors: I have passed Actuarial tests 100, 110, and 135.
**Publications**

Maybe not a publication, but I have respond to well oveer 8,500 questions on the PC.
Well over 2,000 of them have been in calculus.
**Education/Credentials**

I aquired well over 40 hours of upper division courses. This was well over the number that were required.
I graduated with honors in both my BS and MS degree from Oregon State University.
I was allowed to jump into a few courses at college a year early.
**Awards and Honors**

I have been nominated as the expert of the month several times.
All of my scores right now are at least a 9.8 average (out of 10).
