How to Take the Derivative of Tan(X) Did you know that it can be found just by using your knowledge of trigonometry? In this blog post, we will go over how to find the derivative of tan(x). The first thing you need to do is take a look at the following equation.
- Now, the QUOTIENT RULE comes in action which is : If two functions are differentiable,then the quotient is also differentiable.
- We know that Derivate of SinX is CosX and the Dericative of Cosx is SinX. Substituting them with their derevatives respectively, the equation becomes is :
As there are some formulas in trigonometry, You’ll have to apply them :
Here it comes our Final Equation,the Derivative of TanX,
