Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1dw:1351750799134:dwJust use the power rule and chain rule throughout, no need for quotient rule.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the second part is where the chain rule is used. Get the derivative of \[\frac{ z^{2} }{ 7+z }\] by the quotient rule for differentiation

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1You will actually need the product rule because the coefficient is a variable.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@sirm3d so the derivative would be 2x/7 ?and @baldymcgee6 so the previous equation you typed is the product rule? or chain?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0nope. the quotient rule on \[\frac{ z^{2} }{ 7+z }\] will produce \[\frac{ \left( 7+z \right)\left( 2z \right)\left( z^{2}\left( 1 \right) \right) }{ \left( 7+z \right)^{2} }\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0also the second step the last part of the equation is cut off 2(7+z....

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1sorry, my drawings keep getting cut off for some reason. 2(7+z)^3 Just using power rule there.
