Multiply and divide 2(x+1)^1/2 to the numerator and the denominator and simplify.
find the derivative of
x^2
-----------
root (x+1)
the answer is
x(3x+4)
-------------
2(x+1)^3/2
using quotient rule, i got as far as:
(2x)(x+1)^1/2 - (x^2)1/2(x+1)^1/2
--------------------------------------------
x+1
not quite sure what to do after...do i factor out?
Thanks!
