Take the derivative of f(x) = 4x^3+(7/x^2).

f = 4x^3 + 7x^2
f' = 4*3*x^2 + 7(2)x^3
= 12x^2  14/x^3

If I have a function f(x), and am given its derivative, f'(x): may I take it as a given that f(x) is an integral of f'(x). My reasoning is that 'undoing' the derivative gives me the derivative. Eg is 1/3x^3 an integral of x^2?

For 0 < x < PI/2, if y = sin(x)^x, then dy/dx is.. I understand that you can take the natural logarithm of both sides and then take the derivative but why can't I simply take the derivative of it and get.. dy/dx = x(cos(x))(sin(x))^(x1). …

Okay, I want to find the derivative of (x^x)^(x^x)... Well, I already went through the process of finding the derivative of just x^x (I used ln to do this). This is what I found... dy/dx = x^x(lnx+1) So now I want to find the derivative …
