I was wondering if any kind soul would let me know if I needed to use the chain rule to take the derivative of this function.
BTW, I could not get the rational exponent to show up properly. the portion is raised to the 3/5ths power.
Thanks!
Just in case a picture helps...
So, strictly speaking the chain rule operates, but the inner function is very simple and its derivative just the minus one. For reference, the chain rule generally...
... in this case wrapped inside the product rule...
... more visible here if we enclose some of the balloons in some more...
Hope this helps, or doesn't further confuse.
