### The FTC and the Chain Rule

By combining the chain rule with the (second) Fundamental Theorem of Calculus, we can solve hard problems involving derivatives of integrals.

 Example: Compute ${\displaystyle\frac{d}{dx} \int_1^{x^2} \tan^{-1}(s)\, ds.}$Solution: Let $F(x)$ be the anti-derivative of $\tan^{-1}(x)$. Finding a formula for $F(x)$ is hard, but we don't actually need the formula! $$\int_1^{x^2} \tan^{-1}(s) \,ds = F\left(x^2\right) - F(1),$$ so $$\frac{d}{dx} \int_1^{x^2} \tan^{-1}(s)\,ds = 2x F'\left(x^2\right) = 2x f\left(x^2\right) = 2x \tan^{-1}\left(x^2\right).$$

This method generalizes:

 If $f$ is a continuous function and $g$ and $h$ are differentiable functions, then $$\frac{d}{dx} \int_{g(x)}^{h(x)} f(s)\, ds = \frac{d}{dx} \Big[F\left(h(x)\right) - F\left(g(x)\right)\Big]$$ $$\hspace{3cm}\quad\quad\quad= F'\left(h(x)\right) h'(x) - F'\left(g(x)\right) g'(x)$$ $$\hspace{3cm}\quad\quad = f\left(h(x)\right) h'(x) - f\left(g(x)\right) g'(x).$$
