Answers to Questions

How to calculate a derivative?

Mathematicians have defined derivatives using the formula $$ \frac{d}{dx}f = f\'(x) = \lim_{h \to 0} \frac{f(x+h)-f(x)}{h} $$ The derivative calculation is the inverse operation of primitive calculation. dCode knows all derivatives, indicate the function and the deriving variable to get the calculation result.

Example: $$ f(x) = x^2+\sin(x) \Rightarrow f'(x) = 2 x+\cos(x) $$

How to calculate a second derivative?

A second derivative is equivalent to compute the derivative twice, for dCode, indicate twice the same variable.

How to calculate a primitive?

Use the primitive calculator tool available on dCode.
