## kellikelz 2 years ago find the derivative of y with respect to x y=x^4/4Inx-x^4/16

1. sauravshakya

u know product rule?

2. MATTW20

Whoa You need some parentheses here

3. kellikelz

yes i know the product rule

4. kellikelz

where do the parenthesis go

5. MATTW20

Idk wherever you need to show that there is a break in the fractions for example your question might be (x^4/4lnx)-(x^4)/16 or x^4/(4lnx-x^4/16) etc. it's hard to tell where one fraction ends and another begins you know?

6. kellikelz

ok i understand

7. kellikelz

$(x^4/4)\ln x-(x^4/16)$

8. MATTW20

o much better
