Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0When you are deriving polynomials, the important thing to remember is that you can derive each piece independently.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[ 3x^3 + 5x + 10\] To find the first derivative you can apply the Power Rule For Example, in general, finding the derivative of a function with exponents follows such a pattern: \[x^{n} = n*x^{n1}\] Turn the exponent into a coefficient and then subtract 1 from the exponent for the first derivative

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so you use that with misterf's idea, and work through each part of the function individually

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0very nice, antimatter. you can do that to each x term and then add them back together

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1In the physical world, for example, if you have a graph that shows the position of something, the derivative of that graph at a given point is the speed of the object at that point.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0say your function represents your distance over time. if you take the derivative of that function, you will get a function for your speed.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Likewise, if you have a graph (or function) describing the speed, the derivative at a given point gives you the acceleration at that point, i.e., the rate at which your speed is changing. Your speed is the rate at which your position is changing. Etc.
