To differentiate y = 6/x, you can use the power rule for differentiation. The power rule states that if you have a function in the form y = kx^n, then the derivative is dy/dx = nkx^(n-1), where k is a constant and n is any real number.

In this case, y = 6/x can be rewritten as y = 6x^(-1). Applying the power rule:

dy/dx = (-1)(6)x^(-1-1) = -6x^(-2) = -6/x^2

So, the derivative of y = 6/x is dy/dx = -6/x^2.

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.
