    the derivative of \(\sqrt{f(x)}\) is \[\frac{f'(x)}{2\sqrt{f(x)}}\]

    the steps are what i wrote above take the derivative of \(8-6x^2\) and by the power rule, you get \(-12x\) that goes in the numerator in the denominator you put \(2\sqrt{8-6x^2}\)

    oh... why do we put that as the denominator?

    all that is left to do is cancel a 2 top and bottom

    the derivative of \(\sqrt{x}\) is \(\frac{1}{2\sqrt{x}}\) therefore by the chain rule the derivative of \(\frac{1}{f}\) is \(\frac{f'}{2\sqrt{f}}\) where \(f\) is any function

    for example, the derivative of \(\sqrt{\sin(x)}\) is \[\frac{\cos(x)}{2\sqrt{\sin(x)}}\]

    the derivative of \[\sqrt{3x^2+2x}\] is \[\frac{6x+2}{2\sqrt{3x^2+2x}}\]
