3.2/3.3 Simple Rate of Change Formulas of Polynomials, Power, Exponential, Logarithmic Functions Function: Derivative Formula: f(x) = constant f(x) = x n f(x) = mx + b f(x) = c●g(x) f(x) = g(x) ± h(x) f(x) = b x f(x) = e x f(x) = x b log f(x) = ln(x) Derivations of some of the formulas above using the formal definition:
Ex 1: Find the derivatives of the following functions using the simple formulas. A) f(x) = x 5 B) f(x) = 8 C) f(x) = e D) f(x) = e x E) f(x) = 5 x F) f(x) = ln(x) G) f(x) = ( 29 x 5 log H) f(x) = -2x + 5 I) f(x) = 3x 7 J) f(x) = 4x 3 – 7x 2 + 15x – 10 K) f(x) = 2 x – ln(x) L) f(x) = ( 29 x e x x x - + - 5 log 2 4
