Calculus
Section 2.8

Can you do (a) & (b) only?

to estimate the value of each derivative, look for tangent line on a curve at given point and find a slope
here is good link to show you how to do it

I have my doubts about 1 part h. Can you check again?

it's more likely 1
f'(h)=1 (if you draw a tangent, it will pass through points (6,0) and most likely through (9,3), so slope is(3-0)/(9-6)=3/3=1)
