1. The Product Rule:If a function is the product of two differentiable functions

then the derivative is “the first times the derivative of the second plus the second

times the derivative of the first.”

PRODUCT and QUOTIENT RULES

Shorthand

In building our derivative toolkit, we are ready for the power tools! Let’s go. . .

or “f prime • g, plus f • g prime”

Topic 2.8: The Product RuleTopic 2.9: The Quotient Rule

EX #1: Find the derivative of the following.

A) B)

EX #1: Find the derivative of the following.

C) D)

Since multiplication and addition are both commutative, the product rule is hard to mix up, unless you misunderstand the rules. It’s easy, just take turns on the factors. . . One derivative at a time for each term.

A Cautionary Tale . . .

Just don’t confuse the product rule with the limit properties. The product rule is incorrectly interpreted as follows: “The derivative of a product of two functions f and g is the product of the derivatives of f and g.

2. The Quotient Rule:If a function is the quotient of two differentiable functions then the derivative is “the denominator times the derivative of the numerator minus the numerator times the derivative of the denominator, all divided by the denominator, squared.

More Things to Contemplate!

Subtraction is not commutative, you have to be careful with the quotient rule.

The quotient rule is NOT to be interpreted as follows: “The derivative of a quotient of two functions f and g is the quotient of the derivatives of f and g.

Fourth derivative:

Did you realize that it is possible to take the derivative of a derivative? We will need this ability in the study of particle motion and objects in motion, especially related to physics in the near future.
