Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Product rule. \[f(x)=x\]\[g(x)=ln(x)\]\[y=f(x)g(x)\]\[dy=(f'(x)g(x)+f(x)g'(x))dx\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes It seems you will have to use the integration by parts. @vf321 is correctr.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so it would be (x+lnx)dx ? :3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2NO! I made up some functions, f(x) and g(x). Can you tell me what they are? (Hint: Look up). Then find f'(x) and g'(x).

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You have to choose which one you integerate and which one you derive.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2no... Let's look at it one at a time. What is f(x)?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0f(x)= x so f' is equal to one. i get that, but how to derive lnx ;S

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2That's a definition. d/dx(lnx) = 1/x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2so now plug into the product rule: \[dy = (f(x)g'(x) + f'(x)g(x))dx\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[ \frac{ lnx+x }{ x}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[f(x) = x\] \[f^{\prime}(x) = 1\] \[g(x) = \ln(x)\] \[g^{\prime}(x) = {1 \over x}\] Product rule: \[{{\delta fg}\over{\delta y}} = f^{\prime}g + fg^{\prime}\] Now substitute the equations calculated above. \[{\delta y \over \delta x} = 1\ln(x) + x{1 \over x}\] \[{\delta y \over \delta x} = \ln(x) + 1\] the x * 1/x is the same as x/x, which is the same as 1.
