# How do you find the derivative of #f(x)= 2/x#?

The Quotient Rule isn't really needed here, we may rewrite with negative exponents and apply the rule.

To find the derivative of f(x) = 2/x, apply the power rule for differentiation. The power rule states that if f(x) = x^n, then f'(x) = nx^(n-1).

Applying the power rule to f(x) = 2/x, we get:

f'(x) = -2/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.
