CalculusRules of Diﬀerentiation

Aim

To introduce the rules of diﬀerentiation.

Learning Outcomes

At the end of this section you will be able to:

•

Identify the diﬀerent rules of diﬀerentiation,

•

Apply the rules of diﬀerentiation to ﬁnd the derivative of a given function.The basic rules of diﬀerentiation are presented here along with several examples.Remember that if

y

=

f

(

x

) is a function then the derivative of

y

can be representedby

dydx

or

y

or

f

or

df dx

. The basic rules of diﬀerentiation, as well as several commonresults, are presented in the back of the log tables on pages 41 and 42.

Rule 1: The Derivative of a Constant.

The derivative of a constant is zero.

Rule 2: The General Power Rule.

The derivative of

x

n

is

nx

n

−

1

.Example 1Diﬀerentiate

y

=

x

4

.If

y

=

x

4

then using the general power rule,

dydx

= 4

x

3

.

Rule 3: The Derivative of a Constant times a Function.

The derivative of

kf

(

x

), where

k

is a constant, is

kf

(

x

).Example 2Diﬀerentiate

y

= 3

x

2

.In this case

f

(

x

) =

x

2

and

k

= 3, therefore the derivative is 3

= 6

.

Rule 4: The Derivative of a Sum or a Diﬀerence.

If

f

(

x

) =

h

(

x

)

±

g

(

x

), then

df dx

=

Example 3Diﬀerentiate

f

(

x

) = 3

x

2

−

7

x

.In this case

k

(

x

) = 3

x

2

and

g

(

x

) = 7

x

and so

dkdx

= 6

x

and

dgdx

= 7. Therefore,

df dx

= 6

x

−

7

.

Rule 5: The Product Rule.

The derivative of the product

y

=

u

(

x

)

v

(

x

), where

u

and

v

are both functions of

x

is

dydx

=

u

v

×

dudx.

Example 4Diﬀerentiate

f

(

x

) = (6

x

2

+ 2

x

)(

x

3

+ 1)

.

Let

u

(

x

) = 6

x

2

+ 2

x

and

v

(

x

) =

x

3

+ 1. Therefore,

dudx

= 12

x

+ 2 and

dvdx

= 3

x

2

.

Therefore using the formula for the product rule,

df dx

=

u

×

dvdx

+

v

×

dudx.

we get,

df dx

= (6

x

2

+ 2

x

)(3

x

2

) + (

x

3

+ 1)(12

x

+ 2)

,

= 18

x

4

x

3

+ 12

x

x

3

x

,

= 30

x

x

x

.

Rule 6: The Quotient Rule.

The derivative of the quotient

f

(

x

) =

u

(

x

)

v

(

x

), where

u

and

v

are both function of

x

is

df dx

=

v

Example 5Diﬀerentiate

f

(

x

) =

x

2

+ 73

x

−

1

.

Let

u

(

x

) =

x

2

+7 and

v

(

x

) = 3

x

−

1. Diﬀerentiate these to get

dudx

= 2

x

and

dvdx

= 3.Now using the formula for the quotient rule we get,2
