Differentiate (ln(f+g))

This should now be easy for you, if you found the derivative of ln(fg). For the record \[ \frac{d \ }{dx} ln (f) = \frac{f'}{f} \]

I understand ln(fg) = f'/f+g'/g, but what differently do I do here?

so d/dx ln(u) = u'/u. Write here u = f + g. Then d/dx ln(u) = .... what?

d/dx ln(u) = u'/u = ....

Ooops lol. f'+g'/f+g

OpenStudy (jamesj):

d/dx ln(u) = u'/u = (f + g)' / (f + g) = ....
