## Question:

Suppose that f(x) and g(x) are differentiable functions such that f(5) = 4, f'(5) = 3, g(5) = 2, and g'(5) = 1. Find h'(5) when h(x) = f(x)/g(x).

## Quotient Rule:

We can differentiate a wide variety of functions, including ones that are written as the ratio of two expressions. In order to find such a derivative, we need to apply the Quotient Rule.

{eq}(\frac{f}{g})' = \frac{f'g-fg'}{g^2} {/eq}
