**Warm Up Sketch the graph of y = ln x What is the domain and range?**

Determine the concavity of the graph. Determine the intervals where the graph is increasing. Evaluate each without using a calculator. 2) log ) ln e ) log

2
Homework Questions…

3
**Derivatives involving ln and logb**

4
**Derivative involving natural logs.**

“The derivative of ln of something is… one over the something times the derivative of the something.”

5
Examples Find the derivative.

6
**Find the derivative of y = x2 ln(x3)**

7
**Write the equation of the tangent line to y = ln (x1/2) at the point where x = 1**

8
**Sometimes it is easier to find a derivative if you use properties to simplify first.**

Find the derivative of

9
Find the derivative of

10
**Logarithmic Differentiation…**

All it means is that you have something you want to differentiate, you take the natural log of both sides of an equation before you take the derivative.

11
**Why would you want to do that?**

Reason #1 Take the derivative of

12
**Let’s Review the steps…**

Take ln of both sides. Simplify the right side using log properties. Take the derivative of both sides. (You always get on the left side) 4. Move the y to the right side of the = (to solve for dy/dx) and substitute the original y equation in for y.

13
Your Turn Use logarithmic differentiation to determine the derivative of

14
**To determine the derivatives of logb (not ln), use the change of base formula to change it to ln.**

15
Examples Find the derivative.
