Find the rate of change of change of x with respect to p:
,
If you could guide me through this problem that would be great.
rate of change can be viewed as slope geometrically. now certainly you want the instantaneous rate of change of x with respect to p.
ie known as the derivative of x with respect to p.
so let's find the slope. remember that the p is shown respect here so it is our variable.
im not sure how far into calc you are but i'll do it the long way
now we take the derivative
