Differentiation of the Sum/Difference of Functions

Differentiation of the Product of Functions

If f(x) and g(x) are two differentiable functions then f(x).g(x) is also differentiable

Differentiation of the Quotient of Two Functions

If f(x) and g(x) are two differentiable functions and g(x)≠0 then f(x)/g(x) is also differentiable

Differentiation Formulas for Trigonometric Functions

Trigonometric functions can be defined as the functions of an angle of a triangle. The basic trigonometric functions are sine, cosine, tangent, cotangent, secant and cosecant. To learn more about Trigonometry and its formulas check out Trigonometry Formula(s).
