    derivative of u=5x+(1/2) sqrt of x sometimes its easier to use the power rule, and rewriting it as u=5x+(1/2 )( x)^1/2 use power rule of the derivative

    it will be the same idea by using the power rule u=5x + 1/(2sqrtx) u=5x + (1/2)(x)^-1/2 now find the derivative

    u=5x + (1/2)(x)^-1/2 is it du/dt=5+(1/2)(-1/2)x^-1/2 - 2/2) du/dt=5+(1/2)(-1/2)x^-3/2 ) ?

    its find the derivative of the function \[u= 5x+1 \div \sqrt{2}\]

    ok the quotient rule says \[\frac{ d(\frac{ U }{ V }) }{ dx }=\frac{ V \frac{ du }{ dx }-U \frac{ dV }{ dx } }{ v ^{2} }\]

    arrange them like \[u=5x +(\frac{ 1 }{ 2 })(\frac{ 1 }{ x ^{\frac{ 1 }{ 2 }} })\]

    lets try to work only on 1/x^1/2 therefore Dx(U/V)=Dx( 1/x^1/2) so here u=1 and v=x^1/2

    yes on youR formula g=V..,f=u , its the same..you guys have taught f and g but variables such u,v, w are used also locally and internationally

    hm try to study this one let u=1 and v= x^1/2 Dx(1/(x)^1/2) x^1/2(Dx(1) - 1 Dx(x^1/2) = --------------------------- ( x^1/2)^2 0 - (1/2)x^-1/2 = ---------------- x -(1/2) = --------- x x^1/2 -(1/2) =-------------- x^3/2 -1 = ---------- 2 x^3/2

    now lets go back to the prob derivative of u=5x+(1/2)( x)^1/2 1 du/dx= 5 - ------------ 2( 2x^3/2) 1 = 5- ------------- 4x^3/2 w/c is the same as doing it w/ power rule
