Secant line becoming a tangent line

Can anyone help me with his question? I don't understand what the question is referring to :/

Outline the process of a secant line becoming a tangent line to a curve.

Re: Secant line becoming a tangent line

They probably want you to use/derive Newton's difference quotient.
