Differentiation is one of the most important fundamental operations in calculus. Its theory and preliminary idea is basically dependent upon the concept of limit and continuity.
Derivative is to express the rate of change in any function. Derivative means small change in the dependent variable with respect to small change in independent variable. Thus, we can say ...
