## Calculus Tutorial

*Differentiate rational functions*

#### Sample Problem

#### Solution

y=(3x+2)/(2×2-1)

dy/dx=((2×2-1).d/dx(3x+2)-(3x+2).d/dx(2×2-1))/(2×2-1)2 — quotient rule

=((2×2-1).3-(3x+2).4x)/(2×2-1)2 —power rule

=(6×2-3-12×2-8x)/(2×2-1)2 — expand

=(-6×2-8x-3)/(2×2-1)2 — simplify

=(-6.1-8.1-3)/(2.1-1) — substituting x=1

=-17/1

=-17
