13) Review Summary:

  • The Chain Rule. The last operator is what you keep; all of the other operators are "u."
  • When should you use the chain rule:
    • When you have a power (numerical exponent) and the base is anything other than a single variable.
    • When you have a trig ratio and the "inside" part is anything other than a single variable
    • When you have an exponential function (the base is a number) and the exponent is anything other than a single variable.
    • When you have a logarithmic function and the "inside" part is anything other than a single variable.
