# Important Definitions and Formulae in Derivatives

I. Derivatives:
1.Derivative :- Let y = f(x) be a function. If h is any change in x, then the
corresponding change in y is f(x+h) – f(x).If
Lt f(x + h) - f(x)
h →0 h
exists, then f(x) is said to be differentiable at x. The limit is called the
derivative of f(x) and it is denoted by f ′(x) or y ′ or y1 .
