    Use the appropriate rule or combination of rules to find the derivative of the function defined below. y=\[(16x-4)\sqrt{8x-2}\]

    i know i have to use my product rule, when i do that i get: (16x-4)(1/2)(8x-2)^-1/2 + (8x-2)^1/2 *16

    okay so that i got: \[\frac{ 4(16x-4) }{ \sqrt{8x-2} }+16\sqrt{8x-2}\]

    a) 16- 4/squrt8x-2 B)16(squrt8x-2)+32 times 16x-4/squrt8x-2 c)16-16/squrt8x-2 d)64/squrt8x-2 e)32*2^1/2*x^1/2 -16*2^1/2+(16-4x)/squrt8x-2 f)8*csgn(4x-1)*2^1/2 g)16*squrt8x-2+4(16x-4/squrt8x-2) h)8(16x-4)(squrt8x-2)

    ohh, u can cross-multiply to get the common denominator as \(\sqrt{}8x-2\)

    so then i have\[4(16x-4)+16\sqrt{8x-2}(\sqrt{8x-2})\]
