First, I would rewrite the function as and remember that the derivative of a function times a constant is equal to that constant times the derivative. So really, you just need to find the derivative of .

Therefore if then . - Feb 2nd 2013, 09:02 PMmichellederzRe: Finding the Derivative of the Given Function
