How do you find the derivative of [tex] f(x)=5[/tex]?? I got 0/0... but shouldn't there be no derivative then? I know that I can visualize the function f(x) because it is just a straight horizontal line and there is no slope at any point on the line... but how do you solve it algebraically so that it actually makes sense?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
