Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[f(x)=3^{\frac{x}{2}}=e^{\frac{\ln(3) \times x}{2}}\] \[f'(x)=\frac{\ln(3)}{2} \times e^{\frac{\ln(3) \times x}{2}}=\frac{\ln(3)}{2} \times 3^{\frac{x}{2}}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Umm sorry, forgot the minus symbol, just plug it in and you get \[f'(x)= \frac{\ln(3)}{2} \times 3^{ \frac{x}{2}} \]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2no, the derivative of C^u is (C^u)(du)(lnC). So, what I did originally, but with ln instead of log. Someone1348's right, too
