    More Inverse Derivs.

    Find the derivative of the function below.

    h(z) = z^(ln(6))

    ok so this one stumped me. I think you would have to use the chain rule, but when i split it up, the only thing i can come up with for the first function is z^z but that doesnt make sense to me...any help

    No chain rule... natural log of six is just a number!

    h(z) = z^{ln(6)}

    h'(z) = ln(6)z^{ln(6)-1}
