3. THE CONSTANT RULE The derivative of a constant function is zero. That is, if c is a real number, then
4. Find the slope of -3
6. THE POWER RULE If n is a rational number, then the function
is differentiable and
For f to be differentiable at n must
be a number such that is defined on an interval containing 0.
