In Exercises 1-50, calculate the derivate of the function. [HINT: See Example 1.] f ( x ) = ( 2 x − 1 ) − 2

To determine

To calculate: The derivative of the function f(x)=(2x1)2.

Explanation

Given Information:

The provided function is f(x)=(2x1)2.

Formula used:

Derivative of function f(x)=(u)n using chain rule is f(x)=ddx(u)n=nun1dudx, where u is the function of x.

Calculation:

Consider the provided function f(x)=(2x1)2,

Let, (2x1)=u, so f(x)=(u)2.

Apply chain rule,

f(x)=ddx(u2)=(2)u21dudx=2u
