Derivative RulesMade a page on Derivative Rules "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #2 20121121 22:57:44
Re: Derivative RulesHi; In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #3 20121122 00:29:42
Re: Derivative Ruleshi MathsIsFun You cannot teach a man anything; you can only help him find it within himself..........Galileo Galilei #4 20121122 00:35:43
Re: Derivative RulesHi MIF The limit operator is just an excuse for doing something you know you can't. “It's the subject that nobody knows anything about that we can all talk about!” ― Richard Feynman “Taking a new step, uttering a new word, is what people fear most.” ― Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Crime and Punishment #5 20121122 01:34:45
Re: Derivative RulesStefy, why is it not? Anyways, it is a very welldeveloped page. Perhaps you should add an video? I have discovered a truly marvellous signature, which this margin is too narrow to contain. Fermat Give me a lever long enough and a fulcrum on which to place it, and I shall move the world.

Where on the page did you find this, please? You cannot teach a man anything; you can only help him find it within himself..........Galileo Galilei #7 20121122 04:07:49

Re: Derivative RulesOh I see. It's the notation that you were asking about. You cannot teach a man anything; you can only help him find it within himself..........Galileo Galilei #9 20121122 07:16:49
Re: Derivative RulesI like f' because it is short and sweet. But dy/dx has the advantage of saying you are differentiating with respect to x. "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #10 20121122 09:55:31
