What is calculus? It is the study of the interplay between a function and its derivative. There are quite a few aspects to this interplay, some of which may be surprising. In this chapter we shall learn more about the use of derivatives in solving optimization problems. To do this efficiently, the major part of the chapter is concentrated upon the development of shortcut rules for finding derivatives.
