    that's the (p+q)th derivative by the way Sorry that I have to go soon, but I look forward to seeing your responses when I return.

    ln(y) = ln(x^p) + ln(1+x)^q y'/y = p/x + q/(1+x) hmm

    i think the answer is just (p+q)!

    since the highest power of x will be x^(p+q), and all the other powers of x will become 0 after P+q derivatives.
