It seems like it should be simple, but I just cannot get it worked out properly!
Given: y=f(x) with f(1)=4 and f'(1)=3, find:
(a.) g'(1) if g(x)=sq. rt. of f(x)
and then
(b.) h'(1) if h(x)=f(sq.rt. of x)
Please, if someone could please offer me assistance, even some hints would be appreciated.
These are driving me insane with frustration and I have a 105% average in my class!!! What am I overlooking????
Thank you,
Lynn
