    How to figure out the power rule for differentiation

    Consider the following.


    Use the power rule for differentiation to find f '(x). Give your answer using the form below where B > D > F. f '(x) = AxB + CxD + ExF
    A =
    B =
    C =
    D =
    E =
    F =

    You need to know that ^n\sqrt{x}= x^{1/n} and that \frac{1}{^n\sqrt{x}}= x^{-1/n}. B, D, and F are supposed to be exponents, Ax^B+ Cx^D+ Ex^F, and will all be fractions.
