f(x)+xf'(x)sqrt(x)-(7+f(x)+xf'(x))-1/2x^(-1/2) / x?

I used every parentheses correctly, don't know what you were looking at.

Is it (xf(x)+2x^2f'(x)-7) / 2x^(3/2) ? - October 10th 2010, 06:38 PMJhevon
I can say with certainty that you didn't. for one, the numerator and denominator should be encapsulated in parentheses when typing like that. if you look at what you typed, this was not the case; the "f(x)+xf'(x)" should have been in parentheses also... anyway

My apologies then. Thanks for the help.
