Find the derivative of the following functions

Question:

Find the derivative of the following functions (it is to be understood that abcdp, q, r and s are fixed non-zero constants and m and n are integers):

$\frac{1+\frac{1}{x}}{1-\frac{1}{x}}$

Solution:

Let $f(x)=\frac{1+\frac{1}{x}}{1-\frac{1}{x}}=\frac{\frac{x+1}{x-1}}{\frac{x-1}{x}}=\frac{x+1}{x-1}$, where $x \neq 0$

By quotient rule,

$f^{\prime}(x)=\frac{(x-1) \frac{d}{d x}(x+1)-(x+1) \frac{d}{d x}(x-1)}{(x-1)^{2}}, x \neq 0,1$

$=\frac{(x-1)(1)-(x+1)(1)}{(x-1)^{2}}, x \neq 0,1$

$=\frac{x-1-x-1}{(x-1)^{2}}, x \neq 0,1$

$=\frac{-2}{(x-1)^{2}}, x \neq 0,1$
