If the derivative of a function is its slope, then for a constant function, the derivative must be zero. ( 29 0 d c dx = example: 3 y = 0 y = The derivative of a constant is zero.
We saw that if , . 2 y x = 2 y x = This is part of a pattern. ( 29 1 n n d x nx dx - = examples: ( 29 4 f x x = ( 29 3 4 f x x = 8 y x = 7 8 y x = power rule

Example: Find the horizontal tangents of: 4 2 2 2 y x x = - + 3 4 4 dy x x dx = - Horizontal tangents occur when slope = zero. 3 4 4 0 x x - = 3 0 x x - = ( 29 2 1 0 x x - = ( 29 ( 29 1 1 0 x x x + - = 0, 1, 1 x = - Plugging the x values into the original equation, we get: 2, 1, 1 y y y = = = (The function is even , so we only get two horizontal tangents.)
