    The mistake was on raw (a)

    on raw (a), "x + h" was not substitute on the term 7x on the function y = x^2 + 7x 

    and the negative sign was not distributed on the expression x^2 + 7x.

     

    on raw (b)

    (x + h)^2 should be expand like this: (x + h)(x + h) = x^2 + 2hx + h^2

    on raw (c)

    it should be h + 14x/h

    and the rest (d) and (c) are all wrong..

    The problem is using the difference quotient:

    [f(x+h) - f(x)] / h

    Here f(x) is x² + 7x so

    f(x+h) = (x+h)² + 7(x+h)

    = x² + 2hx +h² + 7x + 7h 

    Also, - (f(x)) = - x² - 7x
