In the following discussion and solutions the derivative of a function h(x) will be denoted by tex2html_wrap_inline42 or h'(x) . The following problems require the use of these six basic trigonometry derivatives :
    1. tex2html_wrap_inline46
    2. tex2html_wrap_inline48
    3. tex2html_wrap_inline50
    4. tex2html_wrap_inline52
    5. tex2html_wrap_inline54
    6. tex2html_wrap_inline56
These rules follow from the limit definition of derivative, special limits, trigonometry identities, or the quotient rule. In the list of problems which follows, most problems are average and a few are somewhat challenging.

On problems 1.) through 8.) find answers WITHOUT using the chain rule.

Some of the following problems require use of the chain rule.
