"LHD" means "Left hand derivative" that is, coming toward x from the left (below) so is $\displaystyle \frac{f(x+ h) f(x)}{h}$ with h negative, x+ h< x.

Just remember that although $\text {Not continuous } \implies \text { not differentiable}$, $\text {Continuous } \not \implies \text { differentiable.}$ So you must address the existence and continuity of the Newton quotient after you find the function to be continuous. And like all limits, to be continuous, the limit of the Newton quotient must exist and be equal whether approached from left or right.
