  • Let $y=f(x)$ be a differentiable function then the quantities $dx$ and $dy$ are called differentials.The differential $dx$ is an independent variable.
  • The differential $dy$ is then defined by $dy=f'(x)dx(dx \approx \Delta x)$
  • Also $f(x+\Delta x)-f(x)=\Delta y =dy $ from which $f(x+\Delta x) $can be evaluated
Given $ y=4 \sqrt x$
$\therefore dy=x^{\Large\frac{-3}{4}}dx$
$\qquad= \large\frac{dx}{x^{\Large\frac{3}{4}}}$
