Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay, so you look at it in terms of factors and apply the product rule, so you take the derivative of (3x5) and multiply by sqrt(6x+1) Then you add that to the product of (3x5) and the derivative of sqrt(6x+1) also known as first d last plus last d first

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0to find the derivative of sqrt(6x+1), rewrite it in the sensible form (6x+1)^(1/2) Bring the exponent down in front, reduce the power by one, then multiply by the derivative of the argument
