Finding derivatives of logs and natural logs

The 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.

Equation of the tangent line using implicit differentiation

To 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.
