It seems to me that in the 1st equation the parentheses are different from the
problem as it was submitted, and so the order or operations has been changed.
 
{ (1/h) *{ [ 1/(x+h)] - [1/x] } }   As in the solution
 
       1/h  [ (1/ x + h) - (1/x) ]      As in the submitted problem
 
Note there is an extra set of parens in the solution around the x+h in the second term.

for x is not equal to 0, what is the limit of 1/h[ (1/ x + h) - (1/x) ] when h approaches 0
