Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Hi, \[\sqrt{2x+1}\] is the same as: \[(2x+1)^{1/2}\] If you do not wish to use the chain rule, just go ahead and evaluate for \[2x ^{1/2}\] and \[1 ^{1/2}\] and then differentiate from there. This will work, however, chain rule will be the easiest. Hope that helps.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0try u substitute sub the inside and differentiate and then differentiate the outside because without chain rule you answer is 1/2sqrt(2x+1)
