Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so f(x)= rx^r1 is the formula you use to get the answer?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1The derivative is a function that tells you the slope of a function at any point x on the other function. So suppose you have f(x) and f'(x), a function and its derivative. So if you plug in a value to the function f'(x) it tells you the the slope of a a point on f(x). Yes, paunic, that is the formula, and it is called the power rule.
