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, a differentiation rule is a rule for computing the derivative of a function in one variable. Many differentiation rules can be expressed as a product rule.

it's clear. So when you read here, so we have f of X is equal to X over X square minus one. We're gonna use the quotient role. We'll get X square minus one D acts d over DX minus x times D over D X X square minus one well over X square minus one square just becomes equal to X square minus one minus two X square over X square minus one square, which is equal to negative X square minus one over X square minus one square. We're gonna find the second derivative by using the Kocian rule, which is X square minus one square D over DX your negative X square minus one minus negative X square minus one de over de x X square minus one square All over X square minus one square. You square that again, this becomes equal to that's square minus one times negative. Two acts less negative. Two X square minus two turns negative. Two acts well over X square minus one. Cute. You could simplify this to two x times X square plus three all over X square minus one. Cute
