# Differentiating logarithmic functions review

Review your logarithmic function differentiation skills and use them to solve problems.

## How do I differentiate logarithmic functions?

First, you should know the derivatives for the basic logarithmic functions:

Notice that is a specific case of the general form where . Since we obtain the same result.

You can actually use the derivative of (along with the constant multiple rule) to obtain the general derivative of .
