I need help finding the derivative of
√3x/(x^2-4) at x=3

  1. Steve

    y = √(3x)/(x^2-4)

    y' =

    -√3(3x^2+4)
    ------------------
    2√x (x^2-4)^2

    At x=3 that is

    -√3(31)/(2√3 (25)) = -31/50

    How would I find the second derivative if f(x)= √(x^3+2) using the quotient rule. I got to the step where [(12x√(x^3+2))-(9x^4/√(x^3+2))]/4(x^3+2) how would i go from that to: (3x(x^3+8))/(4(x^3+2)^3/2)
