Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Why do you think it'd be \(2\pi\)? Explain how you got to the conclusion.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I am working on this problem right now dealing with Area. This is what it looks like: \[c^2\div2\pi \] and the answer books says the derivative is C/2pi

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0That's an entirely different problem. You actually have a variable, whose derivative is \(2C\), multiplying that by \(\frac{1}{4\pi}\) gives you: \[ \frac{2C}{4\pi}=\frac{C}{2\pi} \]. So, to answer your original question, yes: \[ \frac{d}{dC}4\pi=0 \]BUT: \[ \frac{d}{dC}\frac{C^2}{4\pi}=\frac{2C}{4\pi}=\frac{C}{2\pi} \]Which is different.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0always remember that the derivative of constant function is 0 ( zero ) .. 4pi is constant function...
