I know I am suppose to find the determinant first then plug in 5...but I am not sure about the determinant

**Reiny**, Sunday, June 17, 2012 at 9:16pmYou meant "derivative" instead of "determinant"

The determinant has nothing to do with this.

dy/dx = x + 3/5

when x = 5

dy/dx = 5 + 3/5 = 28/5 or 5.6

**Help101**, Sunday, June 17, 2012 at 9:23pmwait, what happened to the -1?

**Help101**, Sunday, June 17, 2012 at 9:23pmor the 2 in the x^2/2?

**Help101**, Sunday, June 17, 2012 at 9:25pm...wait, duh, i figured out the x^2/2

**Reiny**, Sunday, June 17, 2012 at 9:47pmI assumed you knew how to find the derivative of such a simple expression.

Remember the derivative of a constant is zero ,

if you want I could write it as

dy/dx = x +3/4 + 0
