Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0actually could you help me with this really quickly? its more pressing: Evaluate (g∘f)′(6), given that f(4)=4, f(5)=6, f(6)=6, g(4)=5, g(5)=5, g(6)=4, f′(4)=6, f′(5)=5, f′(6)=4, g′(4)=5, g′(5)=5, g′(6)=4 a) 16 b) 19 c) 18 d) 17 e) 15

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So i assume : \[(g~\circ ~ f)'(x) \qquad \implies \qquad \frac{d}{dx}(g(f(x)) = g'(f(x)) \cdot f'(x)\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes, that one would be just the chain rule, and they list the values you may need for the functions and their derivatives \[\qquad \frac{d}{dx}(g(f(6)) = g'(f(6)) \cdot f'(6) \]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0f(6) = 6 f '(6) = 4 g'(6)=4 so \[\qquad \frac{d}{dx}(g(f(x)) = g'(f(x)) \cdot f'(x) = g'(6)*f'(6) = 4*4\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0To find f'(x) you use the chain rule... \[\frac{ d }{ dx }f(x) = \frac{ d }{ du }*\frac{ du }{ dx } f(x)\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If you have a function inside a function , like f(g(x)) f(x) = sin(x^3) I usually think something like; " f ' (x) is equal to derivative of sin(inside function left alone) times the derivative of the inside function" f ' (x) = cos(x^3) * 2x^2 thats it, goodluck

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0similar with the given function f(x) = 8*sin(x^(1/2))^3 start with outside and leave inside function same, except here you have to use the rule two times, u^3, sin(u) and x^(1/2) start from outside power function \[f ' (x) = 3*8*[\sin(x^{1/2})]^2~*~\cos(x^{1/2})*\frac{ 1 }{ 2 }*x^{1/2}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0keep leaving the inner functions alone, and work outside to inside, power rule  derivative of sin()  derivative of root x
