\[\frac{d}{dx}[\sqrt{f(x)]}=\frac{f'(x)}{2\sqrt{f(x)}}\]

Let u = 5x+x^2 \[f'(x) = \frac{d}{du}\sqrt u \times \frac{d}{dx}(5x+x^2)=...?\]

First, find d/du (sqrt u) Then find d/dx (5x + x^2) Next, multiply the two results Finally, replace u by 5x+x^2.

i got 2x(5x+x^2) ... is that correct? i had a bit of trouble after plugging the equation in

\[\sqrt{5+x^2}\times(5x+x)^2\]

CallistoBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
\[\frac{d}{du} \sqrt u = \frac{1}{2 \sqrt u} \] \[\frac{d}{dx} (5x+x^2)= 5 + 2x\] Multiply the two results, and sub y = 5x+x^2 back to the answer you get..
