In an autocatalytic chemical reaction, the product formed is a catalyst for the reaction. If Qo is the amount of the original substance and x is the amount of catalyst formed, the rate of chemical reaction is Q'(x)= kx(Q0 − x)
For what value of x will the rate of chemical reaction be greatest?

ok, so I have no idea how to deal with this. i should find where Q''(x)=0, right? but how do you take the derivative with all those variables (still on my 1st semester).
Those variables that are constant are treated as constants.
Those variables that are variables are treated as functions of whatever you are taking the derivative to the respect to. Use the chain rule.
I'm pretty sure only the first sentence applies to you, however.
