Two Questions for the community:
1) Let s(x) = x^(1/4), where x(t) = ln(f(t)) and f(t) is a differentiable function. Find ds/dt.
2) Consider the function f(x0 = x^2 * e^(-x)
Find the best linear approximation to f at x = 0, and compute the 2nd order Taylor polynomial at x = 0.
I'm having problems with this question (I'm in Calc III and this is part of a long review sheet from Calc II; any help would be much appreciated)
1. Use the chain rule.
