fhf0h Iim hOh 1 because hljo hOim fhfOh DOES NOT equal hDO Iim fhf0h Therefore the Derivative does not exist Domain what x cannot be 1xquot2xquot24quot12 Because the denominator can t be zero xquot2 4quot12 cannot equal zero 0 Xquot2 4quot12 OXquot2 4 4Xquot2 X cannot equal 2 Also square roots cannot have negatives and be a real number so we have to make sure there s nothing else that would make the denominator negative under the square root 3A2 9 and 94 3 so that s okay 1A2 1 and 14 3 so in nity 3 U 3 in nity Range What y can be It s easiest to have a graph to look at After looking at the graph for 1Xquot2Xquot24quot12 you can see that the graph covers from in nity to in nity meaning the range is all real numbers Shortcuts for the Derivative 1 FxC Because the line is constantly going horizontal the secant slope is 0 Therefore This is a commonly used rue yC 2 yfxx Because the line is going in a diagonal from the origin at a slope of yX l 11 because of the equation yx Therefore This is a commonly used rule 3 In general dxquotndxnxquotn1 n is all real numbers dxquotndxh0 lim xhquotnXquotnh nxquotn1 This can only be used when n is a positive integer This equation WILL save your
