Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0First, find the derivative. What is \(f'(x)\)?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0No, no. It'd be\[f'(x) = {d \over dx}2x^2  x\]Do you know what derivative is?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Let f(x)=(2x^2x). Give f '(1). f'(x) = 4x f'(1) = 4(1) = 4 . am i right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well we are just starting the chapter on derivatives, so I'm still figuring them out. Mostly we've been dealing with finding the slope of tangent and normal lines.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@febylailani I should point out that,\[f'(x) = 4x  1\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@cuzzin That includes differentiation too!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I think you should write it as: \[\frac{d}{dx} \left(2x^{2}x\right) or \frac{d}{dx} 2x^2\frac{d}{dx} x\] Or people would get confused,which was evident :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ok, where does the (4x1) come from?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0but differential is the short way. before that, there's limit. the formula is a.n.x^(n1). i.e. f(x) = 2x^3 ; a=2 ; n = 3 so, f'(x) = 2.3.x^(31) = 6x^2 cmiiw
