Applying the Derivative Product Rule
In the App Type in the two factors for the function f(x). Check the checkbox for f(x) to see its graph in blue. Type in formulas in the input boxes showing the steps of the calculation of the derivative function (f '(x)). If you type the correct formula, then the text will turn green instead of red. Check the checkbox for f '(x) to see the formula and graph of the derivative function. Note that the formula given for f ' may not be the best, most simplified form.
