This is confirmed by considering what happens when you plug bigger and bigger numbers into . The outputs get smaller and smaller. This graph thus has a horizontal asymptote of y = 0 (the x-axis), and we say that . The fact that x never actually reaches infinity and that f never gets to zero has no relevance. When we say that , we mean that as x gets bigger and bigger without end, f gets closer and closer to zero. The function f also approaches zero as x approaches negative infinity, written as .

In economics, everything is in constant flux. Prices go up and down, supply and demand fluctuate, and inflation is constantly changing. These things are constantly changing, and the ways they affect each other are constantly changing. You need calculus for this. The Derivative: It’s Just Slope Differentiation is the first of the two major ideas in calculus (the other is integration). Differentiation is the process of finding the derivative of a function like . The derivative is just a fancy calculus term for a simple idea you know from algebra: slope.

Herein lies the beauty of the limit process. With this limit, you get the exact , slope of the tangent line even though the limit function, generates slopes of secant lines. Here again is the equation for the slope of the tangent line: And the slope of the tangent line is — yes — the derivative. The derivative of a function at some number x = c, written , is the slope of the tangent line to f drawn at c. The slope fraction is expressed with algebra terminology. Now let’s rewrite it to give it that highfalutin calculus look.
