Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4\[\Large x^2 \sqrt x \implies x^2 \times x^{1/2} \implies x^{2 + 1/2} \implies x^{5/2}\] does that help?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4did you get \[\huge\frac{d}{dx} (x^{5/2}) \implies \frac 52 x^{\frac 52  1}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4the form is x^n remember? n is the exponent...in this case it's 5/2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4for example.. derivative of x^3 is 3x^(31) or 3x^2 derivative of x^4 is 4x^(41) or 4x^3 derivative of x^2 is 2x^(21) or 2x^1 or simply 2x getting the idea now?
