There are certain properties of derivatives that come into play when you take the derivative of functions.Β
The sum and difference properties state that when youβre taking a derivative and two components are added or subtracted, you can take the derivative of each component individually.Β
For example, the derivative of f(x)=x^3+2x could be calculated asΒ
f'(x) = [the derivative of x^3] + [the derivative of 2x].Β
If there is a constant in front of a function, it stays the same throughout. The derivative of f(x)=5x^7 is the same thing as 5[the derivative of x^7].Β
