Hi, Im a total newb at Calculus, Im only in Triginometry in my school, but Im trying to self-learn Calculus, and im having trouble understanding this concept of derivatives. I understand that it is the tangent of a line, and I also understand how to find them the long way using,
But my question is, is there any shortcut to finding a derivative, like in the function the derivative is simply , but what do I do for the bigger ones such as , is there any shortcut there? I already found the derivative of which is
So please tell me if you know any shortcuts to finding the derivatives of a function such as . Thanks!
P.S - Please dont use any big calculus words - im only in triginometry!
