$\frac{d}{dx}\left(x^2\right)+\frac{d}{dx}\left(\frac{1}{x^2}\right)$

The derivative of a sum of two or more functions is the sum of the derivatives of each function. The power rule for differentiation states that if n is a real number and f(x) = x^n, then f'(x) = nx^{n-1}. Apply the quotient rule for differentiation, which states that if f(x) and g(x) are functions and h(x) is the function defined by {\displaystyle h(x) = \frac{f(x)}{g(x)}}, where {g(x) \neq 0}, then {\displaystyle h'(x) = \frac{f'(x) \cdot g(x) - g'(x) \cdot f(x)}{g(x)^2}}. Simplify \left(x^2\right)^2 using the power of a power property: \left(a^m\right)^n=a^{m\cdot n}. In the expression, m equals 2 and n equals 2.
