The Derivative Formula
First PrinciplesTo find an expression for the gradient of the tangent at point P on a curve, we mustconsider lines passing through P and cutting the curve at points Q

...etc.As Q approaches P so the gradient of the chord PQ approaches the gradient of the tangentat P.We can form an expression for the gradient at P by using this concept.We know from coordinate geometry that:
