Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4\[h=[f(x)]^{g(x)}\] \[\ln(h)=\ln([f(x)]^{g(x)})\] \[\ln(h)=g(x) \ln(f(x))\] Now differentiate both sides \[\frac{h'}{h}=g'(x)\ln(f(x))+g(x)\frac{f'(x)}{f(x)})\] \[h'=h(g'(x)\ln(f(x))+g(x)\frac{f'(x)}{f(x)})\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@myininaya is this right? can i take this as a formula for every other problem similar to this one? http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=[f%28x%29]^[g%28x%29]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@myininaya i think while differentiating f^g we can do this way, by assuming g as constant once and diff. f^g and then assume f as constant and diff f^g. now superimpose the two I always got correct answers with this method in fact we get [g*f^(g1)f'+lnf*g'*f^g]
