I need to find the second derivative of y=x(x-1)^1/2. I found the first derivative is 2x-1/2(x-1)^1/2, if someone could check, but I am miserably stuck on the second derivative.

  1. In google type calc101

    When you see list of results click on:
    Calc101 com Automatic Calculus,linear Algebra,and Polynomals

    When page be open click option derivatives

    When that page be open in rectangle type your function and click option DO IT

    Type your equtations like that:



    You will see first and second derivation step-by-step.
