The Quotient Rule – learn how to differentiate a quotient of functions  

Calculus techniques can be applied to answer a range of Mathematical and real-world problems. In fact, almost anything that’s engineered today uses Calculus in its modelling. You could say that Calculus has shaped the modern world. But before Calculus can be applied, you have to learn and practice the rules. The most common rules in Differential Calculus are the Power Rule, Product Rule, Quotient Rule and the Chain Rule. In this video I explain when and how to use The Quotient Rule. Any questions about this video drop us a message HERE.

Key Points

The Quotient Rule (QR) is for differentiating a quotient of functions

A quotient of functions is simply one function being divided by another

Often you can use indices rules and then the power rule, rather than the QR

The QR can be written several ways – choose the one you can remember

Learn the rule and practice using it in different scenarios
