i am getting confused with integrating and differentiating :S
how can i tell the difference and what do they find?
and what is a second derivative ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you just remember this one differentiate = finding derivative = finding the instantaneous slope usually the notation is \[d/dx (fx)\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Integrating = anti derivative = area under the curve so it looks like\[\int\limits f(x) dx\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0double derivative or the second derivative means that you take the derivative of the derivative

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so it is as same as saying \[d/dx (d/dx (f(x)))\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0SO WHAT DO THEY WORK OUT?!?!? WHICH ONE IS THE GRADIENT ONE AND ISNT ONE OF THEM FOR THE STATIONARY POINTS?!?!? ANYONE?!?!?! pwetty pwease

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0They 'work out' the slope. The derivative of an equation at a point gives you the slope of the tangent line at that point. They are also used to calculate the area under a curve.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok, is that the for the first or second one tho? :S

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Either. A second derivative calculates the slope of a tangent line of the first derivative.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0sorry but i dont get it so there isnt a difference?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The second derivative is the derivative of the first derivative. The equations are different, but any derivative  1st, 2nd, 3rd, Nth, is determining the slope of the tangent line of the (n1)th derivative.
