Re: C a l c u l u sI may be wrong but... Boy let me tell you what: I bet you didn't know it, but I'm a fiddle player too. And if you'd care to take a dare, I'll make a bet with you. #3 20050901 00:50:19
Re: C a l c u l u sdy/dx and dy is another way of representing a function's derivative (in this case, y is the function and the derivation variable is x) Code:f(x+Δx)f(x) f'(x) = lim  Δx>0 Δx but Code:f(x) lim f(x) lim  =  g(x) lim g(x) so we can put the definition like this: Code:lim f(x+Δx)  f(x) Δx>0 f'(x) =  lim Δx>0 now call the numerator "differential in y", dy Code:dy f'(x) =  dx So as you can see dy/dx is the derivative of y=f(x) with respect to x Last edited by kylekatarn (20050901 01:13:33)
