Course: Calculus I
Topic: Derivatives
Subtopic: Product Rule, Quotient Rules, & Deriv. of Trig Functions

Overview

If we wish to take a derivative of, for example, x/sinx, we need a rule for taking the derivative of a quotient. Not surprisingly, there is one, and it is called the quotient rule. That along with the product rule, which finds the derivative of a produce such as xex, allow up to find the derivatives of the remaining four trigonometric functions.
