Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i rewrote it: (5x)^1/2 then multiplied and take away one from the exponent: (5x/2) ^1/2 then i move the negative exponent in the denominator: 5x/2 sqrt x)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So the derivative is \[ \sqrt{5}\frac{1}{2\sqrt{x}} \]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\eqalign{ &f(x)=\sqrt{5x} \\ &\\ &\\ &\frac{d}{dx}f(x)=\frac{d}{dx}\sqrt{5x}=\frac{d}{dx}\sqrt{5}\sqrt{x}=\sqrt{5}\frac{d}{dx}\sqrt{x}=\sqrt{5}\frac{1}{2\sqrt{x}}=\frac{\sqrt{5}}{2\sqrt{x}}=\frac{\sqrt{5}}{\sqrt{4x}}=\sqrt{\frac{5}{4x}} \\ }\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@wio so you can't rewrite 5 as 5^(1/2)?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well, you can! But it would still be a constant.
