In Exercises 1–12(a) Calculate the derivative of the given function without using either the product rule or the quotient rule.(b) Use the product rule or the quotient rule to find the derivative. Check that you obtain the same answer. [HINT: See Quick Examples 1 and 2.] f ( x ) = 3 x

(a)

To determine

To calculate: The derivative of function f(x)=3x without using product or quotient rule.

Explanation

Given Information:

The provided function is f(x)=3x.

Formula used:

Constant multiple rule of derivative of function f(x) is f'(cx)=cf'(x) where c is constant.

Derivative of function using power rule, f(x)=xn is f'(x)=nxn1.

Calculation:

Consider the function, f(x)=3x

(b)

To determine

To calculate: The derivative of function f(x)=3x using product or quotient rule. Also, check the answer.
