Find the derivative of f(x)=1/3 sqrt x.
The 3 is little above the square root.

I know that it is -1/3x^-4/3. Can this be written as -1/3x^4/3 ?

  • Math(Please check) -

    So I read this as
    f(x) = x^(1/3)

    f '(x) = (1/3)x^(-4/3)
    which could be written as 1/(3x^(4/3)

    why do you have a negative sign in front?

    I had the negative sign there because thatg was one of the answer choices that best fit what I had but there is no negative correct? Its positive?
