Here's the problem I'm having.
f(x)=ax^n, where n and a are constants and f'(2)=3 and f'(4)= 24
I'm totally confused as to what I should be doing of even what the first steps should be. Any help is greatly appreciated.
Maybe I'm being slow here, but when I do a derivative I get:they want you to find the constants a and n
find the derivative, then, plug in the values as prescribed. you will obtain two equations in a and n that you can solve simultaneously
a(nx^n-1)
And this is the part where I get confused, because I don't know what values go where.
