    Finding derivative example

    Hi, I hope someone can help. I'm trying to find the derivative at x = 4 for the following equation: For some reason, I get the wrong solution when I don't factor out the expression before finding the derivative: The actual solution for f^1(4) is apparently 12: Help would be very much...

    Integral of 1/(1-x)

    Yeah so basically we all know that the integral of 1/(1-x) is -ln(1-x)+c, but if I factor out -1 from the denominator before integration I seem to get -ln(x-1)+c. Can someone explain where the mistake is?

    a point of inflection

    Question, I am learning how to sketch gradient function using the given features of the function y = f(x). The question in the book asked to sketch the gradient function of y=f(x) I was able to sketch it ( y=f'(x)), but the question got me thinking that if a y=f(x) has a point of inflection at...

    Equations of a line through a point, intersects z axis, and parallel to a plane

    A question on my review guide asks for me to find the parametric equations of the line through the point (3,6,4) that intersects the z-axis and is parallel to the plane x − 3y + 5z = 6 . The answer should be (x = 3t + 3, y = 6t + 6 z = 3t + 4) Any help is appreciated!

    What I have to do first, to take the derivative of this function?

    Given f(x) = x^2 - 2x and g(x) = 3*(f(x)), What is the derivative of g(x)? I want to know, if I have to multiply 3 by f(x) and then use the Power Rule, or if I need to substitute the f(x) and the use the Produc Rule? Please dont give the solution!
