Derivatives of Power Functions

How do I differentiate power functions?

In this post, we calculate derivatives of power functions to solve problems, including finding an instantaneous rate of change of a function in both real life and abstract situations, as a part of the Prelim Maths Advanced course under the topic Calculus and sub-part Calculating with Derivatives.

 

The following two videos cover how to differentiate higher degree functions, using what we already know.
