### Example Question #1 : Computation Of The Derivative

**The Second Fundamental Theorem of Calculus (FTOC) **

Consider the function equation (1)

** (1)**

The Second FTOC states that if:

- is continuous on an open interval .
- is in .
- and is the anti derivative of

then we must have,

** (2)**

Differentiate,

**Possible Answers:**

**Correct answer:**

Differentiate:

Both terms must be differentiated using the chain rule. The second term will use a combination of the chain rule and the Second Fundamental Theorem of Calculus. To make the derivative of the second term easier to understand, define a new variable so that the limits of integration will have the form shown in Equation (1) in the pre-question text.

Let,

Therefore,

Now we can write the derivative using the chain rule as:

Let's calculate the derivative with respect to in the second term using the Second FTOC and then convert back to** . **

Therefore we have,

### Example Question #2 : Computation Of The Derivative

Find the derivative.

**Possible Answers:**

**Correct answer:**

Use the power rule to find the derivative.

### Example Question #3 : Computation Of The Derivative

Find the derivative of the following:

**Possible Answers:**

None of the above

**Correct answer:**

To take the derivative you need to bring the power down to the front of the equation, multiplying it by the coefficient and then drop the power.

So:

becomes

because the degree of "x" is just one, and once you multiply 3 by 1 you get 3 and drop the power of "x" to 0. The second term is just a constant and the derivative of any term is just 0.

### Example Question #4 : Computation Of The Derivative

Find :

**Possible Answers:**

**Correct answer:**

To do this problem you need to use the quotient rule. So you do

(low)(derivative of the high)-(high)(derivative of the low) all divided by the bottom term squared.

So:

Which, when simplified is:

### Example Question #5 : Computation Of The Derivative

Find :

**Possible Answers:**

**Correct answer:**

This is the product rule, which is: (derivative of the first)(second)+(derivative of the second)(first)

So:

### Example Question #6 : Computation Of The Derivative

Find the derivative of the following:

**Possible Answers:**

**Correct answer:**

This is a combination of chain rule and quotient rule.

So:

Which when simplified you get:

### Example Question #7 : Computation Of The Derivative

Find the derivative of the following:

**Possible Answers:**

**Correct answer:**

This problem is just addition of derivatives using trigonometric functions.

So:

### Example Question #8 : Computation Of The Derivative

Find the derivative:

**Possible Answers:**

**Correct answer:**

The is a quotient rule using a trigonometric function.

So:

You can pull out an "x" and cancel it to get:

### Example Question #9 : Computation Of The Derivative

Find the derivative:

**Possible Answers:**

**Correct answer:**

This is the same concept as a normal derivative just with a negative in the exponent.

which becomes:

### Example Question #10 : Computation Of The Derivative

Calculate :

**Possible Answers:**

**Correct answer:**

This is a power rule that can utilize u-substitution.

So

where

So you get:

Plug "u" back in and you get:
