# Algebra of derivative of function

Since derivatives are limits of functions, the rules for derivatives are almost the same as that of limits. So the algebra of derivatives is stated below without proof.

where is a constant.

.

This rule is known as product rule or Leibnitz Rule.

Product rule could also be remembered as

This is known as quotient rule.

Quotient rule could be remembered as
