In Exercises 1-50, calculate the derivate of the function. [HINT: See Example 1.] f ( x ) = ( − x + 2 ) 1.5

To determine

To calculate: The derivative of the function f(x)=(x+2)1.5.

Explanation

Given Information:

The provided function is f(x)=(x+2)1.5.

Formula used:

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

Calculation:

Consider the provided function f(x)=(x+2)1.5,

Let, (x+2)=u, so f(x)=(u)1.5.

Apply chain rule,

f(x)=ddx(u1.5)=1.5u1.51dudx=1.5u0.5dudx

Substitute, u=(x+2) and simplify,

f(x)=1
