Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0My logic is that d/dx(x^x)= (x)(x^(x1))= x^((x1)+1)= x^x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[y=x^x \] Use log diff: First step take log of both sides: \[\ln(y)=\ln(x^x) => \ln(y) =x \ln(x) \] Now differentiate both sides: Then solve for y'
