If this was U of X times V of X then this is what we would get if we took the derivative this was a plus sign. But this is here, differentiation quotient rule minus sign.

But were not done yet.

We would then divide by the denominator function squared. V of X squared. So let's actually apply this idea.

Quotient rule

So let's say that we have F of X is equal to X squared over cosine of X. Well what could be our U of X and what could be our V of X? Well, differentiation quotient rule U of X could be our X squared.

And then this could be our V of X. So this is V of X.

Find a Derivative Using the Quotient Rule

And V prime of X. The derivative of cosine of X differentiation quotient rule respect to X is equal to negative sine of X. And then we just apply this. So based on that F prime of X is going to be equal to the derivative differentiation quotient rule the numerator function that's two X, right over here, that's that there.

So it's gonna be two X times the denominator function.

differentiation quotient rule Definition and Formula The quotient rule is a formula for taking the derivative of a quotient of two differentiation quotient rule. It makes it somewhat easier to keep track of all of the terms. Let's look at the formula. If you have function f x in the numerator and the function g x in the denominator, then the derivative is found using this formula: In this formula, the d denotes a derivative. So, df x means the derivative of function differentiation quotient rule and dg x means the derivative of function g. The formula states that to find the derivative of f x divided by g xyou must: Take g x times the derivative of f x.

As we noted in the previous section all we would need to do for either of these is to just multiply out the product and then differentiate. With that said we will use the product rule on these so we can differentiation quotient rule an example or two.
