The derivative of a sum of functions is the sum of the derivatives of those functions, but the derivative of a product or a quotient of functions is not so simple. We'll derive and use the product and quotient rule for these purposes. It will allow us to find the derivatives of other trigonometric functions, and derivatives of power functions with negative whole number exponents.
