**The Double Derivatives of Algebraic Functions**

A double derivative or second derivative is simply the derivative of the first derivative. The operation between the first and the second is just the same. The double or second derivative doesn't end the function derivation. It will continue until the function reaches zero. This mathematical function tends to investigate the details of the said function by means of derivation. "Dismantling" might a bit clear when we say we derive the function. To make the discussion more clear, the variable(s) to be derived highlighted in colors.
