## anonymous 3 years ago what is the derivative of sec(0.68x)^.5 :)

1. bittuaryan

I hope you mean: $\sec \sqrt{0.68x}$

derivative sec((0.68x)^.5)

3. bittuaryan

if u mean: $\sec(0.68x) ^{1/2}$ answer is: $(1/2)(0.68x) ^{1/2} \sec(0.68x) ^{1/2} \tan(0.68x) ^{1/2}$

use the chain rule of differentiation.
