The Constant Rule v The derivative of a constant function is 0. That is, if c is a real number, then [ ] 0 = c dx d
The Power Rule v If n is a positive integer or if n is a negative integer and x 0, then [ ] 1 - = n n nx x dx d

v In the Power Rule, the case for which n = 1 is best thought of as a separate differentiation rule. That is, [ ] 1 = x dx d
The Constant Multiple Rule v If f is a differentiable function and c is a real #, then cf is also differentiable and [ ] ) ( ' ) ( x cf x cf dx d =
