d/dx(1/x2 ) = -2 (x -2-1) = -2* (x-3) = -2/x3
The derivative of f(x) = 99x at x = 100 is:
f'(100) = lim(h → 0) [f(100+h) - f(100)]/h
= lim(h → 0) [99(100+h) - 99(100)]/h
= lim(h → 0) [9900 + 99h - 9900]/h
= lim(h → 0) 99h/h
= lim(h → 0) 99
Find the derivative of
We’ll first need to divide the function out and simplify before we take the derivative. Here is the rewritten function.
The derivative is,
Derivative of sum of two functions is …… of the derivatives of the functions.
The derivative of the constant function f(x) = a for a fixed real number ‘a’ is:
Let f(x)=a , where a is a fixed real number.
Hence, d/dx(a) = 0 , where a is a fixed real number.
Derivative of sum of two functions is sum of the derivatives of the functions. If , f and g be two functions such that their derivatives are defined in ______.
The process of determining the derivative of a function is known as differentiation. It is clearly visible that the basic concept of derivative of a function is closely intertwined with limits. Therefore, it can be expected that the rules of derivatives are similar to that of limits. The following rules are a part of algebra of derivatives:
Consider f and g to be two real valued functions such that the differentiation of these functions is defined in a common domain.
The derivative of f(x) = 1/x3
Derivative of quotient of two functions f(x) and g(x); g(x) ≠ 0 is given by is given by
This is a formula of question.
If f is a real valued function and c is a point in its domain, then is ;
This is a formula for finding derivative or differentiation which is represented by
but here at the place of x , c is written So this is equal to f'(c)
The derivative at x = 2/3 of the function f(x) = 3x is:
f(x) = 3x
f’(x) = lim(h→0) [f(x+h) - f(x)]/h
= f(x+h) = 3(x+h)
f’(x) = = lim(h→0) [3(x+h) - 3(x)]/h
Putting x = ⅔
f’(⅔) = lim(h→0) [3(⅔+h) - 3(⅔)]/h
= lim(h→0) [(6+3h)-6]/h
The derivative of the function f’(⅔) = 3
