# Finding a Derivative In Exercises 29-40, Find the derivative of the algebraic function. f ( x ) = x 2 + 5 x + 6 x 2 − 4

To determine

To calculate: The derivative of the algebraic function f(x)=x2+5x+6x24.

Explanation

Given:

The function is f(x)=x2+5x+6x24.

Formula used:

The Quotient Rule states that,

(vg)=gvvgg2

The power rule of differentiation states that

ddxxn=nxn1

Calculation:

Consider the function,

f(x)=x2+5x+6x24

Recall the quotient rule,

(vg)=gvvgg2

Let v(x)=x2+5x+6 and g(x)=x24,

Substitute the value of v and g in the quotient rule and differentiate the function with respect to x,

f(x)=(x24)(ddx(x2+5x+6))(ddx(x24))(x2+5x+6)(x24)2=(x24)(2x+5)2x(
