### What is Meant by Difference Quotient?

In Calculus, the difference quotient is used to determine the slope of the secant line between two points. The slope is important in calculus where it defines the derivative of a function. Assume that A and B are the two points on the graph function f(x), then the formula to calculate the slope of the secant line “m” is calculated by:
m= [f(x+h)-f(x)]/h
This method is also known as Newton’s Quotient or Fermat’s difference quotient.
