Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0do you know how to expand a function such as \[\left( x ^{2} +3\right)^{2}\] You multiply the first term by the first term, then 1st by 2nd, then 2nd by 1st, then 2nd by 2nd Do you know what im talking about

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I imagine it's: f'(a) = 2.(3x^2  2.1 + 0), right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0This is an explanation I copied from a site Starting with y = ax^b, we can take logs to any base c on both sides: logc(y) = b logc(x) + logx (a) So the graph of logc y vs. logcx is linear, with slope b and yintercept equal to logc a.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if it is f1(a) when a = 2... set the first equation equal to 2, which will happen when x = 1. So, f1(2) = 1. Now if you want f1'(x), you have: = 1 / f'(f1(x)) so 1/ f'(1) find the derivative of f(X): 3x^2 + 2 so, answer = 1/(3(1) +2) = 1/5. Now just replace a = 1 instead of a = 2. Easy.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Imagine that I've a new function: f(x) = x^3 a=1 and also I try to apply that formula > L(x) = f(a) + f'(a)(xa) L(x) = f(a^3) + f'(3a^2)(a^31) L(x) = (1^3) + f'(3.1^2)(1^31) L(x) = 1 + 3.(0) L(x) = 1 Is it right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Do you know that a linear function has a point (x1,y1) (Let) and a slope m (Let),Anyways Thanks a lot @g152xx And @Pauloading Your'e welcome.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@Pauloading It sounds right 2me. Unless you wanted the answer in the form L(x) = f(a)+f'(a)(xa) instead of simplifying it.....

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2we have the formula, L(x) = f(a) + f'(a)(xa) why don't we use it directly ?? a=1 f(1) = 9 f'(1)=6 L(x) = 9+6(x1) = 6x +3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0d/da((a^32 a+4)^2) Using the chain rule, d/da((a^32 a+4)^2) = 2 u ( du)/( da), where u = a^32 a+4 and ( du^2)/( du) = 2 u: 2 (a^32 a+4) (d/da(a^32 a+4)) Differentiate the sum term by term and factor out constants: 2 (a^32 a+4) (d/da(a^3)2 (d/da(a))+d/da(4)) The derivative of 4 is zero: 2 (a^32 a+4) (d/da(a^3)2 (d/da(a))+0) The derivative of a is 1: 2 (a^32 a+4) (d/da(a^3)2 1) The derivative of a^3 is 3 a^2: Answer:   2 (a^32 a+4) (3 a^22)
