    Hi jimjo, welcome to PF! :smile:

    Please read the FAQ about posting homework questions here. You need to state the problem clearly (your problem statement is not at all clear) and show some attempt at solving the problem before you will receive help here.

    That is what the problem says and I don't have an idea how to solve.

    If this forum cannot be of more help then I will leave

    You're telling me your instructor posed the problem exactly as follows?

    We don't do your homework for you here, so if that is what you are looking for, I do suggest you leave. If, on the other hand, you want someone to help you work through the problem by giving you pointers, then simply follow the forum rules.

    Well, let me get you started. After that you have to show some work.

    Express (f + g)'(x) in terms of f'(x) and g'(x).
