Unformatted text preview: Below is a basic func/on. Let’s take the deriva/ve And demonstrate the basic chain rule. 3 f(x)= 6x First, let’s separate the coeﬃcient…. f’(x)= d x 3 6 dx
Now let’s use the chain rule. We take the exponent and make it the coeﬃcient. Then we reduce the exponent by “1”. In this case 3
1=2. f '( x ) = 6 !3 x2 !! 3
Simplifying gives us our ﬁnal answer. f '( x ) = 18 x 2 ...
