To find the derivative of ( f(x) = 2\tan^2(x) - \sec^2(x) ), we differentiate each term separately using the rules of differentiation. The derivative of ( \tan^2(x) ) with respect to ( x ) is ( 2\tan(x) \sec^2(x) ), and the derivative of ( \sec^2(x) ) with respect to ( x ) is ( 2\tan(x) \sec(x) ). Therefore, the derivative of ( f(x) ) is ( f'(x) = 2\tan(x) \sec^2(x) - 2\tan(x) \sec(x) ).

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.
