What is the second derivitive of f(x)=x-4/3x+2
I have the first derivitive, which is f'(x)=-10/(3x+2)^2
If that's right, then what is the second derivitive... I'm sketching graphs for ap cal
You pretty much do what you did to get the first derivative again
into
I think I did that right hahaha. Basically you take the denominator into the numerator and use the chain rule again and get all that goobley gook up there just use your formula again. This of course creates steps that can sort of have you making mistakes here and there so make sure to double check you work and plot a few points
I know how you feel. I dread division as it adds more steps into the process and I worry I'm going to gunk stuff up somewhere.
The "fancy text" is a forum function. When replying there's a Sigma symbol at the top (looks like a funky looking E thing) and it'll create "math brackets" you than do your formula in there. There are certain codes with some problems like division problems are written "/frac {}{}" with the variables in the numerator in the first {} and denominator in the second{}. I'm sure someone can direct you to a tutorial or FAQ that has it somewhere around here hahaha. I'm sort of new
