I'm just learning how to use derivatives and I was wondering if anyone could explain to me how F'(X)=lim c->0 (F(x+c)-F(X))/c gives you a derivative ,what exactly is a derivative, what dose the derivative of a equation give you, and how can they be usefull in other mathmatics/ sciences.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
