    [SOLVED] Differentiate the given functions Grade 12 University Level Calculus

    Hi, I am taking Grade 12 University Calculus.

    The question is.

    Differentiate the given functions. Leave your answer in the simplest factored form.

    I understand I am supposed to take the commons and factor them, but I'm unsure how to go about that, with all the powers

    In this case, you might want to use the chain rule followed by the quotient rule. I can understand your reluctance to use the quotient rule. See the pdf.

    Don't forget a multiplication by the inner derivative in your second term. In this case it's 1 so it doesn't make any difference, but it won't always be that way...
