Differentiation Basics – The Product Rule

The Product Rule

The Product Rule needs to be used to differentiate a function that is a product of 2 separate functions.

Examples

  1. How to differentiate a Log Function being multiplied by ‘X’ and how to differentiate an Exponential Function being multiplied by ‘W’
  2. How to differentiate the product of a Quadratic function and a Square Root function.

Example 1
