If yfx = then all of the following are equivalent notations for the derivative. df dy d f xy f x D f x dx dx dx ′′ == = = = If = all of the following are equivalent notations for derivative evaluated at x a = . xa df dy f ay D f a dx dx = == = = Interpretation of the Derivative If yf x = then, 1. mfa = is the slope of the tangent line to = at x a = and the equation of the tangent line at x a = is given by ( ) y fa f a x a =+ . 2. ( ) f a is the instantaneous rate of change of ( ) f x at x a = . 3. If ( ) is the position of an object at time x then ( ) f a is the velocity of the object at x a = . Basic Properties and Formulas If f x and g x are differentiable functions (the derivative exists), c and n are any real numbers, 1. ( ) c f c f x = 2.
