Find the derivate of the following algebraic function:
I think I am supposed to use the quotient rule, but I can't seem to get the algebra to work. My calculator says the derivative at, say, 1 is 300,000, and I get far less than that. I'm wondering if I am entering it incorrectly in my calculator or just not solving it right as it doesn't seem very simplified when I get through with it.
You mean you can't simplify it any further than that? I'm not necessarily concerned with the derivative at 1, I was just checking it as an example to see if it I was working it out right. Appears I should have chosen a different number. Anyway, I'm trying to find the derivate with respect to x not the derivative at 1.
