Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1before you begin taking the derivative, use the properties of the log to make this expression easier to differentiate

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1it is the log of the whole thing right?

satellite73

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so first step would be, before beginning to take the derivative, rewrite as \[\ln(e^{7x})\frac{1}{2}\ln(4x5)\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1are those steps clear?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1why is 1/2 there and not (4x5)^(1/2)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1i used two facts \[\log(\frac{a}{b})=\log(a)\log(b)\] and \[\log(a^n)=n\log(a)\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1because \[\log(\sqrt{4x5})=\log((4x5)^{\frac{1}{2}})=\frac{1}{2}\log(4x5)\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1but 1/2 is outside the () and not inside ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You can use the rule like that. As long as it's insside the log.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1on other words, \(\log(\sqrt{x})=\frac{1}{2}\log(x)\)

satellite73

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1then one more step before differentiating since log and exp are inverse functions, you have \[\log(e^{7x})=7x\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1okay, so do i need to use product rule for 1/2ln(4x5)?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\(\frac{1}{2}\) is just a constant , leave it there

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well you could... But it's a waste of time.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1for example if you wanted the derivative of \(\frac{1}{2}x^3\) you do not use the product rule, you just say \(\frac{3}{2}x^2\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1gotcha. the power rule^

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so now you have \[7x+\frac{1}{2}\ln(4x5)\] so the only rule you need now is the chain rule for the second part, and also knowing what the derivative of the log is

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1typo there, i meant \[7x\frac{1}{2}\ln(4x5)\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1ok let me know what you get

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It will be useful when you do the ln part.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oops, you forgot to differentiate 7x

satellite73

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1careful of the first term derivative of \(7x\) is just \(7\)

satellite73

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1and you might not want to write \[\frac{4}{2(4x5)}\] since you can cancel a 2

monroe17

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1i thought i was just doing chain rule? i know that that's 7?

satellite73

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1chain rule for \(\frac{1}{2}\ln(4x5)\) because it is a composition , the log of something for \(7x\) that is just a line with slope 7, derivative is 7

monroe17

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1i did the chain rule for ln(4x5) not 1/2*ln(4x5)

satellite73

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yea it is right what you wrote is correct

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the "minus one half" is just a constant, leave it there like you did

monroe17

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1okay, so where do i go from there. that fraction you did confused me.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the only mistake in your answer was that you left \(7x\) there, when the derivative of \(7x\) is \(7\) everything else was right

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you wrote this 7x1/2*(1/4x5)*4

satellite73

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1and the four is in the numerator, cancels with the 2 in the denominator

monroe17

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1derivative of 7x is 7. 1/2 of 4 is 2. 72/4x5

satellite73

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so it should look more like \(7\frac{2}{4x5}\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1thanks! im just a little slow sometimes lol
