Introduction to Computing Derivatives - At A Glance:

If we have a fraction  where c is a constant, this is the same thing as . When asked to take derivatives of functions like this, the first thing we do is rewrite the original function to make it easier to see what we should do with it.

We can do the same thing when we have other less complicated functions in the numerator.
