# Quotient Rule

The Quotient Rule is a rule for taking the derivative of the quotient of two functions. It states that the derivative of $\frac{f(x)}{g(x)}$ is: $$\frac{f'(x)g(x)-g'(x)f(x)}{(g'(x)^2)}$$.

This result can be derived from using the Product Rule on the functions $f(x)$ and $\frac{1}{g(x)}$.
