How would I simplify (1/2sqrtx^(-1/2))/(sqrt2x+9?

• Algebra -

eh? Do you mean

1/2 (√x)^(-1/2)
-----------------
√(2x+9)

Kind of odd, having a root of a root

I'm sorry no, all of it is multiplied (just ignore the dividing slash before square root2x+9, meant to be parentheses to multiply).

• Algebra -

Well, if you mean

1/2 (√x)^(-1/2) √(2x+9)

There's not much to do. If you make it all a 4th-root, then you have

1/2 ∜((2x+9)^2 / x)

I still don't think that's what you meant, but ...

hi, how do u solve this problem using limit notation. I tried it but go stuck at the last part. find f'(x) for f(x)=Sqrt2x-1 using F(x+h)-f(a)/h i got to the end and i got 1/Sqrt2x-1 -sqrt2x-1. i don't know wht u do next?
