Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2my advice for you is..don't use product rule. expand (x1)^2 first

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1alright so \[x^22x+1\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Why not to use product rule?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2right. don't forget the x x(x^2  2x + 1) now distribute x into the trinomial

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2@SheldonEinstein because expanding it will be a lot simpler

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2if you expand it, you just get a polynomial (then you can derive the terms individually)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Oh! Right, I thought you were referring that "Product rule will not work here" . It's my bad, sorry :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1then \[x^32x^2+x\] so f'(x) = \[3x^24x+1\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1can you show product rule with that quickly please?

SheldonEinstein

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Though, I would like to show how product rule will work in this way : \[\large{\frac{d}{dx}{u.v} = u \frac{dv}{dx} + v \frac{du}{dx} \implies \textbf{Product rule}}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1put u = x and v = (x1)^2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Now? @sjerman1 can you do it?

lgbasallote

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2are you required to solve it by product rule or are you just interested @sjerman1 ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1i am just interested, that was a much easier way to solve it but I am actually in the process of finding points guaranteed to exist by rolle's theorem

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2i have no idea what that theorem is.....but let's see what @SheldonEinstein is typing

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[\large{x \frac{d (x1)^2}{dx} + (x1)^2 \frac{dx}{dx} }\] \[\large{x \frac{d(x^2+12x)}{dx} + (x1)^2}\] \[\large{x [ \frac{d(x^2)}{dx} + \frac{d(1)}{d(x)}  \frac{d(2x)}{dx} ] +(x1)^2}\] \[\large{x [ 2x + 0  2 ] + x^2 +1  2x}\] \[\large{ 2x^2  2x + x^2 + 1  2x}\] \[\large{3x^24x+1}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1You're welcome @sjerman1 ... Thanks for the patience friends :) Also , good job @lgbasallote

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2you can also do it without expanding (x1)^2 in the derivative x(x1)^2 x[2(x1)] + (x1)^2 x[2x 2] + x^2  2x + 1 2x^2  2x + x^2  2x + 1 3x^2  4x + 1 just showing an alternative

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Right ..... but usually I prefer to just use d(x^n) / dx and let the students know that x can be anything. like x can be (x1) and similarly it can be (x+1) ...
