If y=(x+1)(x+2)(x+3)......(x+n) then dy/dx at x=0 is:
a)n! ln(1+x)
b)n! ln2
c)n! ln3
d)n! (1+\(\frac{1}{2}\)+\(\frac{1}{3}\)+.... +\(\frac{1}{n}\))

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1You can do it for like small values of n and see if you see one of the patterns above like for n=1,n=2,n=3,n=4 I would stop at n=4 (also hint: don't multiply the junk out after applying product rule)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1If y=x+1, then y'=1 so y'(at x=0) =1 If y=(x+1)(x+2), then y'=? <use product rule....after using product rule don't multiply the junk out and then evaluate y' at x=0 and see what you get

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@Zarkon , you mean to say that we can put value n=1 and see which option satisfies.. And that's it..??

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Remember the product of integers will be integers and the sum of integers will be integers
