find the derivative of y=(x²+5-1/x²)² my steps: y'=2[x²+5-x^(-2)](2x+2x) =4x³+20x-4x^(-1) but the answer given is 4x³+20x+20/x³-4/x^5 why am i wrong?

he's right....

well one minor mistake

what have i done wrong?
anonymous
  • anonymous
it is derivative of y = (x^2 + 5 - 1)^2 * (x^-2)
lgbasallote
  • lgbasallote
the derivative of x^(-2) is not -2x it's -2x^-3
lgbasallote
  • lgbasallote
so just change your 2x there with 2x^-3 and you're fine. redo the rest of the solution

so you use if y = fg y' = f'g + fg'

lgbasallote, i get it, thanks!

welcome. also...don't forget you still have a 2 outside..you have to distribute it to the equation too

  • anonymous
try use chain rule to solve it

the eq is not a ratio..
