Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So whenever you take the derivative of y, you can mark it with (dy/dx). Whenever you take the derivative of an x, you can mark it with (d/dx). So take the derivative of both sides, put dy/dx and d/dx where necessary, and plug in the given values.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1y is in terms of x, there are no t's so treat x's like a constant derivative of a constant is 0

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Pretty much. They made it a little easy on ya with there being a dx/dt, haha. But itd be nice practice if we said it was d/dx and made d/dx equal to 1.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okay so the derivative to this would be: 21x^210

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1with respect to x, yes but they ask for it with respect to t (not x)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okay. so do i multiply each by dx/dt?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Its like theyre saying, there is no t for there to be a derivative in respect to, so everything is 0. Thats why I said we should change the conditions of the problem for practice.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[\frac{d(f(x))}{dt}=0\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1x is some function of t, thus when we take the derivative of y with respect to t, we get \[\frac{ dy }{ dt }=\frac{ d }{ dt }\left( 7x ^{3}10x \right)=\frac{ d }{ dt }\left( 7x ^{3} \right)\frac{ d }{ dt }\left( 10x \right)=21x ^{2}\frac{ dx }{ dt }10\frac{ dx }{ dt }\]form there it's plug in what you know and compute

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1since dx/dt is 0, dy/dt is 0. y only depends on x. look at te function. if x doesn't change, neither will y. the math proves it.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0question: why would it be zero?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the problem states that dx/dt = 0

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1each term in dy/dt is multiplied by dx/dt

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1no, d/dt is an operator. it says take the derivative of wht follows with respect to t.
