Section 4.3 Differentiation of Logarithmic and Exponential Functions Rule 1. The Derivative of x y ln = ( ) x x dx d 1 ln = for x > 0 For the composition )), ( ln( x f y = use the chain rule. ( ) ) ( ' ) ( 1 ) ( ln x f x f x f dx d = for x > 0 Example 1 : Differentiate the function x x x f ln ) ( = NOTE: ) ( x f is a product where x is the first factor and x ln is the second factor. Therefore we will use the product rule.
