Finish problems with Basic Rules in 3.1 3.2 Product Rule For p(x) = f(x)∙ g(x), the derivative p’(x) is given by: p’(x) = f(x) ∙ g’(x) + g(x) ∙ f ’(x) 3.2 Quotient Rule For q(x) = f(x) g(x), the derivative q’(x) is given by: q’(x) = g(x) ∙ f ’(x) – f(x) ∙ g’(x) [g(x)] 2 Consider the function f(x) = 1/x 2 at the point (4,1/16) Find the slope of the tangent line Find the equation of the tangent line Real World Applications f(t) = 0.082t3 + 0.019t2 + 2.7t +2.7 where 0< t< 4 where f(t) is in billions and t is in years with t = 0 corresponding to 1997.
