Find the derivative of $\sin\left(2x\right)$ using the definition. Apply the definition of the derivative: $\displaystyle f'(x)=\lim_{h\to0}\frac{f(x+h)-f(x)}{h}$. The function $f(x)$ is the function we want to differentiate, which is $\sin\left(2x\right)$. Substituting $f(x+h)$ and $f(x)$ on the limit, we get

$\lim_{h\to0}\left(\frac{\sin\left(2\left(x+h\right)\right)-\sin\left(2x\right)}{h}\right)$

Apply the definition of the derivative: \displaystyle f'(x)=\lim_{h\to0}\frac{f(x+h)-f(x)}{h}. The function f(x) is the function we want to differentiate, which is \sin\left(2x\right). Substituting f(x+h) and f(x) on the limit, we get. Multiply the single term 2 by each term of the polynomial \left(x+h\right). Using the sine of a sum formula: \sin(\alpha\pm\beta)=\sin(\alpha)\cos(\beta)\pm\cos(\alpha)\sin(\beta), where angle \alpha equals 2x, and angle \beta equals 2h. Factoring by \sin\left(2x\right).

##  Final answer to the problem

$2\cos\left(2x\right)$
