Subtopic: Logarithmic Differentiation

Overview

We have found the derivative of a variable to a constant and the derivative of a constant to a variable, but in this lesson we tackle the derivative of a variable to a variable. This requires a process called logarithmic differentiation which requires applying the natural logarithm function and using implicit differentiation.
