Calculus Product Rule Contradiction?????
Posted:
Nov 7, 2004 4:12 AM


I'm alittle confused with regard to the Calculus Product Rule, on the one hand I have this rule [f(x)g(x)]' = f(x)g'(x) + g(x)f''(x)
but two pages before this I have this statement: the limit of a product equals the the product of the limits lim [f(x) x g(x)] = lim f(x) x lim g(x) as h > a
so whats the difference between these two statements because to me they seem like the same thing only with two different rules???????
