How would I differentiate this?
I thought it would go like this (but it doesn't work). Where am I going wrong?:: >>>>>
Please help me out. Thank you in advance.

I would write the function as:
To differentiate, use the power rule term by term:
What something such as
Surely since the 16^(-1) differentiates to 0, the whole equation differentiates to 0 (since everything is multiplied by 16^(-1))
fyi, problems involving derivatives belong in the calculus forum

Can I do the same for integration? I.e. ignoring 15/16 until after I've integrated the thing in the brackets.
look over your basic rules ... they're in your text.

How does one determine f(x)? Is it just anything involving an x? In other words, can I make anything k as long as it multiplies into the f(x) and does not involve x?
k is a constant factor of the function
