### Examples of calculating the derivative

Examples of calculating the derivative Example 1: Find the derivative of the functions.   Applying the constant rule:   If $displaystyle y=c$ then $displaystyle y’=0$ The Power function rule: If $displaystyle y=a{{x}^{n}}$ then $displaystyle y’=an{{x}^{{n-1}}}$ a) $displaystyle y=3{{x}^{7}}$ $displaystyle y’=(3cdot 7){{x}^{{7-1}}}=21{{x}^{6}}$ b) $displaystyle y=-4$ $displaystyle y’=(-4)’=0$ c) \$ displaystyle […]
