# Basic Formulas of Derivatives

General Derivative Formulas:

1) $\frac{d}{{dx}}(c) = 0$ Where $c$ is any constant.

2) $\frac{d}{{dx}}{x^n} = n{x^{n - 1}}$ It is called Power Rule of Derivative.

3) $\frac{d}{{dx}}x = 1$

4) $\frac{d}{{dx}}{[f(x)]^n} = n{[f(x)]^{n - 1}}\frac{d}{{dx}}f(x)$ Power Rule for Function.

5) $\frac{d}{{dx}}\sqrt x= \frac{1}{{2\sqrt x }}$

6) $\frac{d}{{dx}}\sqrt {f(x)} = \frac{1}{{2\sqrt {f(x)} }}\frac{d}{{dx}}f(x) = \frac{1}{{2\sqrt {f(x)} }}f'(x)$

7) $\frac{d}{{dx}}c \cdot f(x) = c\frac{d}{{dx}}f(x) = c \cdot f'(x)$

8) $\frac{d}{{dx}}[f(x) \pm g(x)] = \frac{d}{{dx}}f(x) \pm \frac{d}{{dx}}g(x) = f'(x) \pm g'(x)$

9) $\frac{d}{{dx}}[f(x) \cdot g(x)] = f(x)\frac{d}{{dx}}g(x) + g(x)\frac{d}{{dx}}f(x)$ It is called Product Rule.

10) $\frac{d}{{dx}}[\frac{{f(x)}}{{g(x)}}] = \frac{{g(x)\frac{d}{{dx}}f(x) - f(x)\frac{d}{{dx}}g(x)}}{{{{[g(x)]}^2}}}$ It is called Quotient Rule.
