    Derivation refers to the process of finding or deducing a new expression, formula, or conclusion from other known information, facts, or principles. It involves using logical reasoning, mathematical operations, or established rules to arrive at a new result or relationship.

    Some common examples of derivation include:

    1. Deriving a formula: For instance, deriving the formula for the area of a circle (A = πr^2) from the definition of the circle and the properties of pi.

    2. Deriving a mathematical proof: Deriving a theorem or lemma by starting from axioms, definitions, and previous proven results, and applying logical inference rules.
