Find the derivative of y=[6(x^3/2)]/x

thankyouu!

i got 9sqrtx but i don't think that's right!

  • Calculus -

    I would simplify first

    y = 6 x^(3/2) / x
    = 6x^(1/2)
    dy/dx = 3x^(-1/2)
    or
    3/sqrt(x)

    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 …

    Find d^2y/dx^2 by implicit differentiation. x^(1/3) + y^(1/3) = 4 I know that first you must find the 1st derivative & for y prime I got 1/3x^(-2/3) + 1/3y^(-2/3) dy/dx = 0 Then for dy/dx I got dy/dx = [-1/3x^(-2/3)] / [1/3y^(-2/3)] …

    I'm trying to find the second derivative of h(x)= x^2 + cos(kx) My answer for h'(x) is 2x - ksin(kx) but I'm not sure if that's right. Then the answer I got for h''(x) was h''(x) = 2 - k^2cos(kx) but I'm pretty sure that's wrong based …
