The chain rule is often one of the hardest concepts for calculus students to understand. It’s also one of the most important, and it’s used all the time, so make sure you don’t leave this section without a solid understanding.

Read MoreThe derivatives of base-10 logs and natural logs follow a simple derivative formula that we can use to differentiate them. With derivatives of logarithmic functions, it’s always important to apply chain rule and multiply by the derivative of the log’s argument.

Read MoreTo find the equation of the tangent line using implicit differentiation, follow three steps. First differentiate implicitly, then plug in the point of tangency to find the slope, then put the slope and the tangent point into the point-slope formula.

Read MoreGiven that the numerator is a constant and the denominator is any function, the derivative will be the negative constant, multiplied by the derivative of the denominator divided by the square of the denominator.
