Find the derivative: y = square root of x(x+14).

The square root is only on the x. Please show work and explain. I don't know how to do this. Thanks!

• Math -

if y = √u = u^(1/2)
y' = 1/2 * u^(-1/2) u'

u = x^2+14x
u' = 2x+14

y' = (2x+14)/(2√x(x+14))
= (x+7)/√x(x+14)

• Math - Oops -

oops. I didn't read it carefully

use the product rule: if
y = f*g, y' = f'*g + f*g'

y = (x+14)√x
y' = (1)√x + (x+14)*(1/2√x)
= (2x+x+14)/2√x
= (3x+14)/2√x

Find the derivative of f(x) = (square root of x)(ln x). Using my notes, I came up with f'(x) = (1/2*square root of x)/x The answer in the back of the book says f'(x) = (2+ln x)/(2*square root of x). Can someone please explain how?
