In Exercises 13-28, calculate d y d x . Simplify your answer. [HINT: See Example 1 and 2.] y = | x | x 2

To determine

To calculate: The derivative of function y=|x|x2.

Explanation

Given Information:

The function is y=|x|x2.

Formula used:

Quotient rule of derivative of differentiable functions, f(x) and g(x) is,

ddx[f(x)g(x)]=f'(x)g(x)f(x)g'(x)[g(x)]2

Where, g(x)0.

Derivative of function y=xn using power rule is dydx=nxn1.

Calculation:

Consider the function, y=|x|x2.

Apply quotient rule of derivative,

dydx=ddx(|x|)x2|x|ddx(x<
