# Proving that the product rule for differentiating products applies to vectors

If r and s are vectors that depend on time, prove that the product rule for differentiating products applies to r.s, that is that:

d/dt (r.s) = r. ds/dt + dr/dt .s

--
I'm not entirely sure how I'm supposed to go about proving this, can anyone point me in the right direction, please?

## Homework Statement

$$\frac{d}{dt} (\vec{r}\cdot\vec{s}) = \frac{d}{dt}(r_x s_x + r_y s_y + r_z s_z)$$
