Is differentiation just finding the rate of change in a function?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

[tex]\frac{dx}{dy}[/tex] (y=6x) =6?

rate of change in [tex]\frac{2}{y}=\frac{2}{x}[/tex]the same as :[tex]\frac{dx/dy}{dy/dx}*y=\frac{5y}{2}[/tex] if and only if y=2/5 ? which equals 1 lol

I think I am right :x but non- of the Wikipedia articles help because of there complexity.
