hopefully you know the power rule for derivatives.

are you aware of the chain rule?

it says

here, your and your

an example:

here, apply the product rule(x^2+2)(2x^3-5x^2+4x)

it says (if and are functions of ), then

here, your and your

note that you can write the radicals as powers to obtain the following

sqrt X - 3rd square root x not 3(sqrt x) but the 3 is very small and close to the square root sign

now apply the power rule to find the derivative

two main options here.and 3x/x^2+4

(1) write as and use the product rule with and . note that you need the chain rule to find

(2) use the quotient rule:

your and are the same as above
