PROBLEM 1

f(x)=1/(x-2x^2)^(9/8)

Find the derivative of f(x).

For starters i moved the binomial to the numerator and switched the power to negative giving me f(x)=(x-2x^2)^(-9/8) . After that I simply applied the chain rule giving me (-9/8)(x-2x^2)^-17/8(-4x) . It says this answer is incorrect...

PROBLEM 2

f(x)=sqrt(3+sqrt4x) The 4x has two sqrt over it. I broke this problem down to read f(x)=(3^1/2+4x^1/2)^1/2 . I then used the chain rule which gave me (1/2)(3^1/2+4x^1/2)(2x^-1/2) . It says this answer is incorrect...

I'll post the other two up after I get some help on these because I havent even been able to start them. They are more difficult then these two. Thanks for the help.
