How do you get m=0? from taking the second derivative? does c=1?
Can you check my work on how I get the derivative of R=M^2(c/2m/3) NEXT R=1/2(CM^2)1/3(M^3) NEXT dR/dM=CMM^2. I checked in the back, and that was the answer for the first part of the equation. Isn't the derivative of constant c, zero? I am confused.
You have it correct. yes, the derivative of a constant is zero, but you didn't take that derivative.
if y= ax
dy/dx= a
If you took the long way, the uv rule..
y=ax
dy/dx= a dx/dx + x da/dx
but da/dx is zero (derivative of a constant is zero), os
dy/dx= a

Does my answer look correct? Find the derivative. 11, y= (e^3e)(e+5)/6e my work: ((6e)(4e^3 + 15e^2  2e  5)  (6)(e^4 + 5e^3  e^2  5e))/ (6e)^2 Multiplied/divided everything through My answer: (10e^2 + 30e  3)/ 18 I cant follow
