Newton wrote it like this   , Lagrange wrote it like this   and Euler wrote it with just the first letter of the function’s name. However, the most widely used notation for the function was written by this guy.

Who is he (AutoRaja will be happy), What function are we talking about, how did he write it?

Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz, Bernhard Christoph Francke.jpg

Cracked by: Dibyo and Dibyo

Answer:
Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz wrote differentiation function as dy/dx, which is the most widely used notation for differentiation since it makes it explicit which variable is differentiated with which.

Points assigned by AutoRaja. Review by lazy humans pending.
