See how to apply the quotient rule to compute the derivative of sin(x) /(8x) with respect to *x*:

In[1]:= |

Out[1]= |

In some cases, when there is no explicit quotient in the first argument of QuotientRule, the argument may be interpreted as a quotient:

In[2]:= |

Out[2]= |

Setting "InactiveInnerDerivatives" to True inactivates the derivatives of the factors within the structure of the quotient rule:

In[3]:= |

Out[3]= |

Setting "PrintNapkin" to True prints a grid with the side "napkin" work needed to apply the quotient rule (i.e., identifying and computing the derivatives of each factor):

In[4]:= |

Out[4]= |

Setting "PrintRule" to True prints a general statement of the quotient rule for derivatives:

In[5]:= |

Out[5]= |
