Example Question #61 : Calculus Review

Find the derivative of the following function:

Explanation:

The easiest way to find the derivative of this function is by using the quotient rule which states that:

To find the derivative of the numerator, you must use the power rule which states that:

To find the derivative of the denominator, you must use the chain rule which states that:

After applying all of the stated rules, you get that the derivative of the function is:

After further simplifications, the final answer is:

Example Question #62 : Calculus Review

Find the derivative of the following function:

Explanation:

The only way to find the derivative of this function is by using the following rule:

Therefore, part of the derivative will contain the original function, . To solve for the u' portion of the equation, you must take the derivative of the exponent which requires the use of the rule again. The derivative of the exponent is:

The cosecant comes from the following rule:

After combining all of the components in accordance with the rule for differentiating exponential functions, the final answer is:

The simplification was made using the following rule:
