Introduction

We have seen, in the rst three Sections, how standard functions like x

n

, e

ax

, sin ax, cos ax, ln ax

may be dierentiated.

In this Section we see how more complicated functions may be dierentiated. We concentrate, for

the moment, on products and quotients of standard functions like x

n

e

ax

,

e

ax

ln x

sin x

.

We will see that two simple rules may be consistently employed to obtain the derivatives of such

functions.

_

`

Prerequisites

Before starting this Section you should . . .

be able to dierentiate the standard

functions: logarithms, polynomials,

exponentials, and trigonometric functions

be able to manipulate algebraic expressions

_

Learning Outcomes

On completion you should be able to . . .

dierentiate products and quotients of the

standard functions

dierentiate a quotient using the product rule

1. Differentiating a product

In previous Sections we have examined the process of dierentiating functions. We found how to

obtain the derivative of many commonly occurring functions. These are recorded in the following

table (remember, arguments of trigonometric functions are assumed to be in radians).

In this Section we consider how to dierentiate non-standard functions - in particular those which can

be written as the product of standard functions. Being able to dierentiate such functions depends

upon the following Key Point.

Key Point 9

Product Rule

If y = f(x)g(x) then

dy

dx

=

df

dx

g(x) + f(x)

dg

dx

(or y

= f

g + fg

)

If y = u.v then

dy

dx

= u

dv

dx

+ v

du

dx

(or y

= uv

+ vu

)

These versions are equivalent, and called the product rule.

We shall not prove this result, instead we shall concentrate on its use.

Workbook 11: Dierentiation

Example 8

Dierentiate (a) y = x

2

sin x (b) y = x ln x

Solution

(a) Here f(x) = x

2

, g(x) = sin x

df

dx

= 2x ,

dg

dx

= cos x

and so

dy

dx

= 2x(sin x) + x

2

(cos x) = x(2 sin x + x cos x)

(b) Here f(x) = x, g(x) = ln x

df

dx

= 1 ,

dg

dx

=

1

x

and so

dy

dx

= 1.(ln x) + x.

x

= ln x + 1

HELM (2008):

Section 11.4: Dierentiating Products and Quotients

The rule for dierentiating a product can be extended to any number of products. If, for example,

y = f(x)g(x)h(x) then

dy

dx

=

df

dx

[g(x)h(x)] + f(x)

d

dx

[g(x)h(x)]

=

df

dx

g(x)h(x) + f(x)

dg

dx

h(x) + g(x)

dh

dx

=

df

dx

g(x)h(x) + f(x)

dg

dx

h(x) + f(x)g(x)

dh

dx

That is, each function in the product is dierentiated in turn and the three results added together.

Example 9

If y = xe

2x

sin x then nd

Here f(x) = x, g(x) = e

2x

, h(x) = sin x

Workbook 11: Dierentiation

2. Differentiating a quotient

In this Section we consider functions of the form y =

f(x)

g(x)

. To nd the derivative of such a function

we make use of the following Key Point:

Key Point 10

Quotient Rule

If y =

f(x)

g(x)

then

dy

dx

=

g(x)

df

dx

dg

dx

f(x)

[g(x)]

(or y

If y =

v

then

dy

=

v

du

dx

dv

dx

(or y

Here f(x) = ln x and g(x) = x
