    No, it has to be (the derivative of the top times the bottom) minus (the top times the derivative of the bottom).

    I always just used the product rule. Never bothered with the quotient rule. You can rewrite the quotient rule as the product rule and deal with stuff that way. I think it's conceptually easier to do and easier to derive if you forget where it comes from.
