If $u,\: v$ and $w$ are functions of $x$, then show that $\large\frac{d}{dx} $$( u.v.w) =\large \frac{du}{dx} $$v.w + u . \large\frac{dv}{dx} $$. w + u.v. \large\frac{dw}{dx} $ in two ways - first by repeated application of product rule, second by logarithmic differentiation.

Can you answer this question?

  • Product rule $y=u.v.w=u.(vw)$
  • $\log mn=\log m+\log n$
Step 1:
Differentiating on both sides
(i) $\large\frac{dy}{dx}$$=u'(vw)+u\large\frac{d}{dx}$$(vw)$
Step 2:
(ii) Taking $\log$ on both sides
$\log y=\log u+\log v+\log w$
Differentiating on both sides
Substitute the value of $y$
