# The Quotient Rule

Course:
Calculus

The quotient rule is one of the 5 fundamental derivative rules. It shows you how to take the derivative of f(x)/g(x). In this video we will give some examples, talk about a common mistake, and give a proof of the quotient rule.

Course Description
Calculus is the mathematical study of curves in the plane, surfaces in space, and other "non flat" shapes. You learn about the derivative, which describes how quickly a curve is changing at a specific point. You will also study the integral, which combines the values of a curvy object over a region. While these may seem like opposite puzzles, they are actually connected! So get ready to leave the world of lines behind as you begin to learn the tools needed to study more fancy shapes.
