f(x) = (3x^3+5x^2+8x-8)/x find the derivative

asked by BB
  1. f(x) = (3x^3+5x^2+8x-8)/x
    = 3x^2 + 5x + 8 - 8/x

    f ' (x) = 6x + 5 + 8/x^2

    or (6x^3 + 5x^2 + 8)/x^2
    which is the answer one would get using the quotient rule

    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
