    is that all you do for this problem, take the derivative?

    Thanks, I did that but it seemed to be too easy. Thought there would be more to it. I do not like word problems!!!

    You felt this problem easy means you became expert in taking derivatives. Congratulations. Now try taking complicated derivatives for more fun.

    I have worked with the product, quotient and chain rule also and I do ok with them. Gets harder when square roots and fractions are in the problem.
