hi could anyone please give me the first and second derivative of this function:
((60000000)/(Q)) + (((Q-S)/\2)/8Q) + ((S/\2)/Q)
in terms of Q and S.
thanks
Rudy
Is this needing a partial derivative or is one of these a constant
In terms of could mean "Differentiate in respect to" or it could mean "And then solve for in terms of"
secondly is this your problem
$\displaystyle f(Q,S)=\frac{60000000}{Q}+\frac{\frac{Q-S}{2}}{8Q}+\frac{\frac{S}{2}}{Q}$?
yes partial derivative.
and yes sorry i should have said "Differentiate in respect to"
dont know how this maths coding thing works
instead of Q-S divided by 2 should be (Q-S) to the power of 2
similarly S to the power of 2 divided by Q
hope that makes sense
thanks
