(5xto2 = 1) represents What is the operation?
ok the answer in the book is 1/3xto2(5xto2 +1)to-5/3 (25x + 9) I started the problem like this -3xto2(5xto2 +1)to-5/3 (10x) do am I on the right track?
You need to use the product rule to compute the derivative. Let and . Then the derivative of the function uv is: . Can you calculate and ?
so it will be like this? (xto3)-2/3(10x)to-5/3 + (5xto2 +1)to-2/3(3xto2)

that is where I have problems. can you show me how it is done
