## How do you show step by step in Mathematica?

Click on the sample integration problem at the end of the notebook and press Shift-Enter to evaluate it. After a minute or so depending on the speed of your computer, the first step of the integration should be displayed. To see successive steps, click on the intermediate results and press Shift-Enter.

## What is the command to find derivative of f in Mathematica?

f’ is equivalent to Derivative[1][f]. f” evaluates to Derivative[2][f]. You can think of Derivative as a functional operator which acts on functions to give derivative functions.

**Can Mathematica do partial derivative?**

Mathematica can be used to calculate partial derivatives. The built in function D[f[x,y], x] calculates the partial derivative of f(x, y) with respect to x. Note that z has already been defined so Mathematica will make the appropriate substitution.

**How do you find the nth derivative of a sequence?**

Hint: In order to determine the nth order derivative, first find out some derivative of the given function up to the order of 3. You will see some patterns are following in the result. Now generalise the pattern by combining the term and in the end use the knowledge of factorial to obtain the simplified result.

### What does derivative mean in mathematics?

In mathematics, the derivative is a way to show rate of change: that is, the amount by which a function is changing at one given point. For functions that act on the real numbers, it is the slope of the tangent line at a point on a graph.

### How do you calculate partial derivative?

Partial derivatives are typically independent of the order of differentiation, meaning Fxy = Fyx. Calculate the derivative of the function f(x,y) with respect to x by determining d/dx (f(x,y)), treating y as if it were a constant. Use the product rule and/or chain rule if necessary.

**How do I find the derivative of a fraction?**

To find the derivative of a fraction, use the quotient rule. The quotient rule says that if this equation is true: [math]\\displaystyle f(x) = \\frac {g(x)} {h(x)}[/math] then we can find the derivative [math]f’(x)[/math] as follows:

**What is the meaning of first order derivative?**

The first order derivative of a function represents the rate of change of one variable with respect to another variable . For example, in Physics we define the velocity of a body as the rate of change of the location of the body with respect to time.
