    Quite a few, you got any yourself? Seems a bit weird that you're using n as a continuous variable, by the way.

    What makes you think the function is both left and right differentiable, by the way?

    I am not known for my pure maths but for differentiation continuity is a prerequisite

    My second year analysis springs to mind (as that's checking whether the function is able to be differentiated from both the right and left and side)

    lol!

    Just ignore the second function, it's a load of crap anyway.

    Surely this is basic a-level / advanced GCSE?

    Simply differentiate n^2 + 1 and plug n=1 into the answer.

    Should be approximately equal to two.
    Remember what it was you said yesterday? Not to say anything when you're clueless? Yeah, that applies here.

    I am not sure it is even possible.

    Draw the graph, there is a gap in there and so you cant draw a tanget to it or at least dx=0 so f'(1) doesnt exist.

    Awesome, thanks for confirming that, saved me a quick wiki lookup.

    That's correct, your justification isn't the best, but I suppose it'll do at your level.

    It should be, but given that it's on the point I can't exactly remember the rule of just forgetting the second function (this is what a maths degree did to me )

    the dy/dx is e/z what I get is a gap in the graph for f'(x) so not possible right :P

    I have seen what it did to TeeEm, I have been warned not to study maths already

    No, you're quite correct.

    No. You say it is non-existent.

    Nah, it just does not exist.

    Sorry for my lousy faux-pas. I'll point at the time for my excuse..
