The derivative of a function of a real variable measures the sensitivity to change of a quantity (a function or dependent variable) which is determined by another quantity (the independent variable).

Weegy: In mathematics, a function ? is uniformly continuous if, roughly speaking, [ it is possible to guarantee that ?(x) and ?(y) be as close to each other as we please by requiring only that x and y are sufficiently close to each other; unlike ordinary continuity, the maximum distance between ?(x) and ?(y) cannot depend on x and y themselves. For instance, any isometry (distance-preserving map) between metric spaces is uniformly continuous. ] User: darivative (More)

A derivative is a financial contract which derives its value from the performance of another entity such as an asset, index, or interest rate, called the "underlying".
