use quotient rule.
yeah. this i know.
i got [2-ln(x-1)]/[(1-ln(x-1))^2] but that's wrong

I think it looks more like this u = x du/dx = 1 v = 1-ln(x -1) dv/dx = -1/(x-1) \[dy/dx = (1 - \ln(x -1) + x/(x-1))/(1-\ln(x -1))^2\]
The answer in the texbtook is f'(x) = [2x - 1 - (x - 1) ln(x - 1)] / [(x - 1)[1 - ln(x - 1)]^2]; domain of f = (1, 1+e) U (1 + e, infinity)
I need this explained to me.
still.
Optionally, use the reverse multiplication rule. Say: f(x) = x*(1-ln(x-1))^(-1) Quotient rule tend to be quite messy. But can you show what you did so far? I may be able to guide you through it. :-)
\[y=\frac{x}{1-\ln(x-1)}\] You could do log diff. \[\ln(y)=\ln(\frac{x}{1-\ln(x-1)})\] \[\ln(y)=\ln(x)-\ln(1-\ln(x-1))\] Now diff both sides \[\frac{y'}{y}=\frac{1}{x}-\frac{0-\frac{1}{x-1}}{1-\ln(x-1)}\] So Simplifying right hand side first we have \[\frac{y'}{y}=\frac{1}{x}-\frac{-1}{(x-1)(1-\ln(x-1))}\] Now multiply y on both sides \[y'=y(\frac{1}{x}+\frac{1}{(x-1)(1-\ln(x-1))})\] And replace y with \[\frac{x}{1-\ln(x-1)}\] So this is another way :)
