find the nth derivative of 2/(x+1)

  • calculus -

    f(x)=2/(x+1)
    df/dx = -2/(x+1)^2
    d²f/dx² = 4/(x+1)³
    d³f/dx² = -12/(x+1)^4
    ...
    d10f/dx10 = 7257600/(x+1)^11

    The last derivative is intended to be a test for your "rule", which your teacher would like you to discover.

    If you wish, you could send in your nth derivative for a check.
