    Exercise \(\PageIndex{3}\)

    This problem investigates why Theorem 35 states that \(\int \frac{1}{x}\,dx = \ln |x|+C\).
    (a) What is the domain of \(y=\ln x\)?
    (b) Find \(\frac{d}{dx}(\ln x)\).
    (c) What is the domain of \(y=\ln (-x)\)?
    (d) Find \(\frac{d}{dx}\left ( (\ln (-x)\right )\).
