First of all, http://www.mathhelpforum.com/math-he...743f6a35-1.gif is not correct, x cubed will be to the one half power, because you are taking the square root of it, not the cube root.

To differentiate, you multiply ((x^3)^(1/2)) and x^(1) to get

(x^3)^(3/2) + 1

Now, differentiate:

dy/dx = (3/2)(x^3)^(1/2)*(3x^2) - Feb 18th 2010, 06:06 AMHallsofIvy
You also appear not to have "distributed":

Now, use that the derivative of is .
