From Charlene Anderson: Question: I came across a question in our book that states: Let Q(x) = N(x) / D(x) Then re-write Q(x) in a form that can utilize the Power and Product Rules. Use this rearranged form to derive the Quotient Rule.
The Quotient Rule can be derived from the Power Rule and the Product Rule.
One must also use the chain rule too, right?
