    What have you tried? The trickiest bit is the initial step I imagine, then the rest is as difficult as the earlier questions.

    k(x+h) -kx

    h



    is this right?

    Yes. Now you can simplify the numerator.

    kx + kh- kx
    ——————
    h

    =

    kx + k - kx

    = k ???

    Yes that's right. And k is a constant so the limit as h -> 0 is still going to be k.

    Y=kx
    So
    Lim ((k(X+h)-kx)/h)= ((kx+Kh-kx)/h) =k

    You can check the answer by differentiating it normally dy/dx= k

    so if you have y = 8x then the gradient function is y = 8

    in other words a constant gradient, which means it is a straight line graph.
