Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you should memorize the derivative of \(\sqrt{x}\) because it is a very common function the derivative of \(\sqrt{x}\) is \(\frac{1}{2\sqrt{x}}\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1as for \(\frac{3}{\sqrt{x}}\) you can rewrite it as \(3x^{\frac{1}{2}}\) and use the power rule

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the first part is right, you still have to take the derivative of \[3x^{\frac{1}{2}}\] using the power rule
