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 ----&gt; a

so whats the difference between these two statements because to me they seem
like the same thing only with two different rules???????
