In mathematics, a derivative is a measure of how a function changes as its input changes. Loosely speaking, a derivative can be thought of as how much one quantity is changing in response to changes in some other quantity; for example, the derivative of the position of a moving object with respect to time is the object's velocity. The concept of a derivative developed as a way to measure the steepness of a curve; the concept was ultimately generalized and now "derivative" is often used to refer to the relationship between two variables, independent and dependent, and to various related notions, such as the differential.

In mathematics, the derivative of a function of a real variable measures the sensitivity to change of the function value (the rate of change of the value of the function). If the derivative of a function at a chosen input value equals a constant value, the function is said to be a constant function. In this case the derivative itself is the constant of the function, and is called the constant of integration.

you the Jew polynomial in. But I had a far X Square Ministry X minus one and in part we were given the X squared minus Jew Thanks minus one. And then the question asked, You find a good on the good nominee on here. In part, I noticed that we can write down as far X square and for the monetary X. We can read that as a man is for X Ah, and then last Thanks minus one. And now we can call this one into one group is on the agenda. Another group and they were affected the four x outside. And so we have the X minus one. Something here will be X minus one. So we have the same factor X minus one outside since I would have the far thanks was one. And now they're far, isn't we Want equal Jizo now and now usually implies Dan the X minus one. He could you zero on the far X. My plus one equals Jizo And it implies that x months ago to one x months ago to minus one other far. That's what we the part I find about three. We see that it would be much Is a Jew a blind, uh, commit in the square. So I will give the X Square minister, and you know that you committed a square. I need to add the one here. And then I had to subject The one has to have this minus one else in this here, could you? So the 1st 2 terms exactly will be the X minus ones square. And this one here would be months to I've been to the honest night. So you could you too. Now I do the square root on both sides. So have active minus one equals U Plus a man, a skirt of Jew and then X We could do one plus or minus skirt a bit you and that will be the answer in the factory.
