1. ## 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.
