What is the actual meaning of the notation of(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Here do we actually differentiate f with respect to x first and then evaluate it at g(x), or do we first evaluate f at g(x), then differentiate it with respect to x? Does the order matter?Code (Text):df[g(x)]

-------

dx

df

--[g(x)]

dx

d

--f[g(x)]

dx

Are these two equivalent to the first one? (i.e. do all three notations have exactly the same meaning?)

Thanks for explaining!
