Chain Rule: Rate of Change Version Let y be a diﬀerentiable function of u where u is a diﬀerentiable function of x . Then y is a diﬀerentiable function of x and ex. Suppose y = 4 u + 1 u and u = x 2 - 3. Find dy dx . What is the slope of the tangent line to y = f ( x ) when x = - 1?
ex. The quantity demanded per month, x , of a new PC is related to the unit price p by the demand equation x = f ( p ) = 12 p 640 , 256 - p 2 . It is also estimated that the average price of the PC will be given by p ( t ) = 2000 8 + t + 600, 0 t 9, where t is in months. Find the rate at which the quan- tity demanded per month will be changing 2 months from now.
