UNIT 1. DERIVATIVES OF AND INTEGRALS YIELDING TRANSCENDENTAL FUNCTIONS In your basic calculus, you were already introduced with limits, derivatives, and integrals.
However, you may observe that the functions that are usually considered are algebraic in nature, i.e.,
polynomial functions, square root functions, rational functions, etc. In this section, we will deal with a
class of functions different from algebraic functions called transcendental functions. These includes
trigonometric and inverse trigonometric functions, exponential and logarithmic functions, among
others.
For the first Unit, derivatives of and integrals yielding this type of functions will be discussed.
Moreover, a technique in solving derivatives of “convoluted” functions, called logarithmic
differentiation, will also be introduced. We will also look into some application problems such as
optimization and related rates problem that involves derivatives of transcendental functions. Lastly, we
evaluate limits of functions of indeterminate forms using L’Hopital’s Rule.
Our goals for this unit are as follows. By the end of the unit, you should be able to

The limit of a function is a fundamental concept in calculus. It describes the behavior of a
function as its variable gets closer to a specific point. The derivatives and the definite integral are
formally defined in terms of limits.
Intuitively, when we say “the limit of () as approaches is ”, it means that as gets
closer and closer to , the function values of () gets closer and closer to .
Notation: () = ⟶ read as “the limit of () as approaches is ”
For example, consider the function defined by () = . Note that as gets closer and
closer to , the value of () gets closer and closer to . One can verify this fact by either looking at
the graph of or by investigating the values of () for values of near like . or
. . Then we write, = ⟶ Definition. (Limit of a Function)
Let be a function defined at every number in some open interval containing , except
possibly at itself. Then, () = if for every > (however small), there exists > such
⟶ that if < | − | < , then |() − | < .
The inequalities < | − | < and |() − | < describe the “closeness” that is referred to
when we say “ approaches ” or “() approaches . MATH 27 Lecture Guide UNIT 1 (IMSP,UPLB) We state here its formal definition. 1 1.1.1 Limit Theorems
Instead of using this formal definition of limit, we compute for limits using limit theorems. MUST REMEMBER!!! Limit theorems
1. If () = and () = , then = .
⟶ (uniqueness) ⟶ 2. If is a constant, then = .
⟶ = and for ∈ ℕ, = . 3. ⟶ ⟶ 4. If and are any constants, then ( + ) = + .

⟶ ⟶ • (() ± ()) = ± ⟶ • (() ∙ ()) = ∙ ⟶ • ( () ⟶ () )= provided ≠ 6. If () = , > and ∈ ℕ is even, then √() = √.
⟶ ⟶ If () = and ∈ ℕ is odd, then √() = √.
⟶ ⟶ From the theorems, it is immediate that for polynomial functions, say (), computing a limit
is simply evaluating () at = , in other words, () = ().

We next consider one-side limit.
Consider a real number and a function .

Let be defined from the right of , i.e. on some open interval of the form (, ).
The limit of from the right of is if the function values () approaches as approaches from the right.
Notation: + () = ⟶ Limit from the left
Let be defined from the left of , i.e. on some open interval of the form (, ).
The limit of from the left of is if the function values () approaches as approaches from the left.
Notation: − () = ⟶ MUST REMEMBER!!!
Theorem. () exists and is equal to if and only if + () and − () both exist and both
⟶ ⟶ ⟶ are equal to . ILLUSTRATION:
1. Consider the function () = √ − with domain = [, +∞).
Note that is defined from the right of = but is undefined from the left of = .
Since is undefined from the left of = , it is immediate that − √ − does not exist.
⟶ Now, from the right of = , the function values approaches . Hence, + √ − = .
⟶ Even if + √ − exists but − √ − does not exist, the “two-sided limit” √ − does
⟶ ⟶ ⟶ not exist. 2. Consider the function () = { + ≤ with domain = ℝ. − > To obtain the limit from the right, we consider the function values from the right of = .
This is given by the condition > .
So, + () = +( − ) = .
⟶ ⟶ To obtain the limit from the left, we consider the function values from the left of = .
This is given by the condition ≤ .
So, − () = −( + ) = .
⟶ ⟶ Since + () and − () both exist and are both equal to , the theorem tells us that
⟶ ⟶ () also exists and that () = . ⟶ ⟶ MATH 27 Lecture Guide UNIT 1 (IMSP,UPLB) We focus on the behavior of the function as approaches = . 3 1.1.3 Infinite limits It is also possible that () can increase or decrease without bound. We discuss this case in
the next section. Consider the function () = whose graph was given on the right.
Note that ⟶ does not exist. The function values do not approach any particular values as ⟶ . However, we can still establish the behavior of
the function as ⟶ + and as ⟶ − .
As ⟶ + , the values

⟶ As ⟶ − , the values decreases without bound. Note that − ⟶ is of the form − meaning the denominator approaches 0 through negative values. Hence, we write + = −∞.
⟶ Remark: Infinite limits of the form () = +∞ or () = −∞ describe the behavior of the
⟶ ⟶ function. The limit () does not exist but the behavior increases without bound (+∞) or
⟶ decreases without bound (−∞).

We first talk about basic differentiation of functions. Differentiation is the process of finding the
derivative of a function. The derivative of a function is defined in terms of limit of a function which was
discussed in the previous section.
REMEMBER THIS!!! Definition of Derivative
The derivative of the function , denoted by ′, is defined by
′ () = → if this limit exists. ( + ) − () Further, if is a particular number in the domain of , then the derivative of at may also be
defined as
() − ( )
′ ( ) = → − if this limit exists. Alternative notations: For a function = (), the derivative ′ is also denoted by
, , or . If ′ ( ) exists, then we say that is differentiable at .
Instead of using limits, we will compute for derivatives using the following rules of
differentiation.
REMEMBER THIS!!! Basic Rules on Differentiation
1. If is a given constant, then [] = .
2. Power Rule If is a given real number, then [ ] = − .
3. If is a given constant and is a given function, then [ ⋅ ()] = ⋅ [()].
4. Sum/Difference Rule
If and are given functions, then [() ± ()] = [()] ± [()].
In general, if , , … , are given functions, then [ () ± () ± ⋯ ± ()] = [ ()] ± [ ()] ± ⋯ ± [ ()].
5. Product Rule If and are given functions, then Mnemonic: left de-right plus right de-left 6. Quotient Rule If and are given functions, then [ Mnemonic: ()

We first apply the theorems in algebraic functions such as polynomial, radical and rational
functions. ILLUSTRATION: 1. For the function () = − √ + , express it in the form () = − − + . Then, implement the Power Rule to each term. Hence, the derivative is given by ′ () = −− − − + . 2. To obtain the derivative of () = ( + )( − ), implement the Product Rule.
So, ′() = ( + ) ( − ) + ( − ) ( + ) = ( + )() + ( − )().
3. To obtain the derivative of = − + − , implement the Quotient Rule. So, ( − ) ( − + ) − ( − + ) ( − )
=
( − ) = ( − )( − ) − ( − + )( )
.
( − ) There are functions wherein the given basic differentiation rules do not apply. We introduce here a
rule that can be used in these cases.
Chain Rule
Chain Rule is a very tool in differentiating composition of functions. A composition is of the form
() = ( ∘ )() = (()).
REMEMBER THIS! Chain Rule
If () = (()), then ′() = ′ (()) ⋅ ′ (). In other notation, if = () and = (),
then = ⋅ . ILLUSTRATION: Applying Chain Rule,
′ () = ′ (()) ⋅ ′ () = [()] ⋅ ( − ) = ( − + ) ⋅ ( − )
2. To compute for [( − − ) ], apply the Power Rule. Then, by Chain Rule, apply the Quotient Rule to the innermost expression. Hence, − − − − ( − )() − ( − )(−) [(

to refer to Module I. Derivatives of MATH 27 BASIC CALCULUS Preparatory Modules to better
understand the concept of derivative and the use of chain rule in solving derivatives involving
algebraic functions. The given rules on differentiation will also hold for transcendental functions,
which is the concern of this course. TRY THIS! Compute for the derivatives of the following functions using rules for differentiation. 1. () = − − + − 2. () = ⁄ − √ + √ 3. () = + − + 4.

∫ () = () + ,
where is an arbitrary constant. In this case, we call () an antiderivative of (). We also say that
the indefinite integral of () with respect to is (). The symbol
() is referred to as the integrand. ∫ is called the integral sign and MATH 27 Lecture Guide UNIT 1 (IMSP,UPLB) We now talk about the inverse process of differentiation. Antidifferentiation is the process of
finding all the antiderivatives of a given function. 8 REMEMBER THIS!!! Basic Rules of Antidifferentiation

+ 1. (Power rule) If is any rational number, then ∫ = 2. ∫ = + 3. ∫ () = ∫ () 4. ∫[ () ± () ± ⋯ ± ()] = ∫ () ± ∫ () ± ⋯ ± ∫ () + , where ≠ −. CAUTION!!! There is NO immediate rule for antiderivative of product nor of quotient. Thus, the
following may not hold true:
∫ ()() ≠ ∫ () ∫ () ∫ ()
∫ () ≠
()
∫ () ILLUSTRATION:
1. To compute for ∫( − + ) , simply take the antiderivative of each term. Hence, ∫( − + ) = −
+ + . 2. There is NO quotient rule for antiderivatives. Some quotients can be written in the form where
Power Rule is applicable. So, − ∫ = ∫ − =
+ = − + . − 3. There is NO product rule for antiderivatives. Whenever possible, first take the product of the
expressions. Then, compute for the term-by-term antiderivatives. Hence,
∫( + )( − ) = ∫( + − ) = + −
+ = + − + . Substitution Technique In general, given a function and its derivative ’, then

used in solving integrals of some products or quotients. 9 ILLUSTRATION: 1. To solve for ∫ √ + , we let = + so that = and = . Hence, ∫ √ + = ∫ √ = ∫ = ⋅

We first determine the derivatives of this type of
function. Integrals yielding trigonometric functions will directly follow. In the later sections, integrals of
trigonometric functions will also be considred.

Derivatives of Trigonometric Functions ( ) = ( ) = ( ) = ( ) = − ( ) = − ( ) = − It is a fact that the previously discussed trigonometric functions are differentiable over their
respective domains.
To aid in remembering things, we can think of the trigonometric functions as pairs, such that
the derivative of the “co-function” is always negative. In particular, we can pair sine with cosine,
tangent with cotangent, and secant with cosecant. This pairing will be very useful as we go through
the succeeding sections.
If the argument of a trigonometric function is a differentiable function of the variable , then
we can use Chain Rule to obtain its corresponding derivative.
