IB 10/08/08 General derivative formulas, applying to arbitrary functions f(x) and g(x) [cf(x)]´ = c [f´(x)] Multiplicative constant rule [f(x)+g(x)]´ = f´(x) + g´ x) Sum rule [f(x)-g(x)]´ = f´ x) - g´(x) Difference rule [f(x)g(x)]´ = f(x)g´(x) + g(x)f´(x) Product rule [f(x)/g(x)]´ = (g(x)f´(x) – f(x)g´(x)) / (g(x)) 2 Quotient rule dy/dx = (dy/du) (du/dx) Chain rule (Leibniz) [f(g(x))]´ = f´(g(x)) g´(x) Chain rule (Newton) (Derivative of the outside function evaluated at the inside function, times the derivative of the inside function)
