Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0by the definition you have to use the limit as h approaches zero \[\lim_{h \rightarrow 0}\frac{ (x+h)x }{h }\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Warning: I'm going to do this directly. \(y=2(x+1)^3\) \(y+\delta y=2(x+1+\delta x)^3\) Now, \(\delta y=2(x+1)^3 2(x+1+\delta x)^3 \) Note: \(x^3y^3=(xy)(x^2+y^2+xy)\) So, \(\delta y=2[(x+1(x+1+\delta x) ][(x+1)^2+(x+1+\delta x)^2+(x+1)(x+1+\delta x) \)] \(\delta y=2(\delta x)[(x+1)^2+(x+1+\delta x)^2+(x+1)(x+1+\delta x) \)] Dividing by \(\delta x\), \(\frac{\delta y}{\delta x}=2[(x+1)^2+(x+1+\delta x)^2+(x+1)(x+1+\delta x) \)] taking the limit, \( \delta x \rightarrow 0\) \[\lim_{\delta x \rightarrow 0}{\frac{\delta y}{\delta x}}=\lim_{\delta x \rightarrow 0}{2[(x+1)^2+(x+1+\delta x)^2+(x+1)(x+1+\delta x) ]}\] Thus, \[\frac{d y}{d x}=2[(x+1)^2+(x+1)^2+(x+1)(x+1) ]\] \[\frac{d y}{d x}=6(x+1)^2\] voila! Though I cannot imagine what kind of person would ask you to do this...
