Differentiating a Function

How do I differentiate a function?

In this post, we use the formula \frac{d}{dx}(x^{n}) = n x^{n-1} for all real values of n , as a part of the Prelim Maths Advanced course under the topic Calculus and sub-part Calculating with Derivatives, specifically focusing on differentiating a function.


This video covers many different ways of differentiating, however, we are only focusing on the power rule at the beginning. This video explains what the power rule is and how it is applied to a function as an example.
