Lecture 12 — Product, Quotient, Chain Rule Given any differentiable functions, we have seen that it is a simple task to differentiate their sum. We now vastly increase the pool of functions that we can differentiate with the use of a few simple rules for computing the derivatives of products, quotients, and compositions of such functions. Product Rule If two functions f and g are differentiable at x , then fg is differerentiable at x and d dx f ( x ) g ( x ) = Sketch of Proof:

Find the equation of the tangent line to the graph of the function S ( θ ) = θ sin(2 θ ) when θ = π 4 . The graph of the function f ( x ) = x 2 - 6 e 2 x is shown; what x coordinates correspond to points A and B on the graph ?

Quotient Rule If two functions f and g are differentiable at x and g ( x ) 6 = 0 , then f g is differerentiable at x and d dx f ( x ) g ( x ) = Proof: d dx 1 g ( x ) = lim t x 1 g ( t ) - 1 g ( x ) t - x = Thus, d dx f ( x ) g ( x ) = d dx f ( x ) · 1 g ( x ) =
