Can anyone help me out in finding the second and third derivitive of radicals like
Thanks, I can really use some help.

, where n is any constant.
Then using the power rule with the power being 1/2,
Now for f'', use the quotient rule. Is this the point where you're having trouble or did this post clear something up?
Im having more trouble finding a way to find the second derivative of that
Well the derivative of u/v is (vu'-vu')/v^2, so just follow the formula and you already know the derivative of v since v is f(x)
I broke the top and bottom of the first derivative into seaparate functions foruse in the product. But I end up with the same equation for the second derivitive as i got in the first. Is this correct?
