derivative of (x^3/6)+(1/2x)?
i got (x^2/2)(1/2x^2) is that correct?
and then wut is the (F'(x))2?...meaning the derivative squred?
if you meant (1/2)x^2  1/(2x^2) you are correct
I don't think they are looking for the square of the derivative, but rather the second derivative.
just differentiate again what you had in your first derivative.
no i am looking for the derivattive squared becasue the accual problem is to find the surface area and to find it i need (f(x)^2)
