My best guess is that you are expected to use the limit definition of the derivative, and hope it will be meaningful.

Good point. I missed that one.Is [imath]h[/imath] real? If [imath]f[/imath] is a real valued function, how can [math]f(3+2ih) = 2+ 4ih[/math]?

Hello!

Turns out this problem could be solved using this equation (link for reference)

So, eventually:

[imath]f'(x)=\frac{lm(2+4ih)}{h}= 4h/h = 4[/imath]
