The Chain Rule - Concept

Concept Concept (1)

Use the chain rule to find the derivative of the composite of two functions--the derivative of the "outside" function multiplied by the derivative of the "inside" function. The chain rule is related to the product rule and the quotient rule, which gives the derivative of the quotient of two functions.
