    y=5x/x^3 -4 y=5/x^2-4 y=5*[x^(-2)}-4 dy/dx=5*(-2) [ x^(-2-1)]-0 dy/dx=-10*x^(-3)

    why in the second step the exponent became 2...did you subtract

    well i thought 4 is not included , and acc I have diffrenctd , whereas had it been with x^3 , ans would have been diff

    now if its included , quotient rule has to be applied

    \[ f(x) = \frac {5x}{x^3 -4} \implies f'(x) = \frac{(x^3 -4)\times 5 -5x \times(3x)}{(x^3 -4)^2} \]

    quotient rule : {(dy/dx numerator)*denominator-[(dy/dx denominator)*numerator]} / denominator^2 try solving with this , if you get stuck , letme know ! btw FFM has done a great job already , so you wont find any pro ! :-)

    \[ f(x) = \frac {5x}{x^3 -4} \implies f'(x) \] \[= \frac{(x^3 -4)\times 5 -5x \times(3x^2)}{(x^3 -4)^2} = -\frac{10 \left(2+x^3\right)}{\left(-4+x^3\right)^2} \]
