What is wrong with the following? d d x ln | 3 x + 1 | = 3 | 3 x + 1 | X WRONG!

To determine

The error in the expression ddxln|3x+1|=3|3x+1|.

Explanation

Given Information:

The provided expression is as follows:

ddxln|3x+1|=3|3x+1|

Consider the expression,

ddxln|3x+1|

The derivative of natural logarithm of a function is ddxln|u|=1ududx.

Apply the above formula for the derivative,

ddxln|3x+1|=13x+1ddx(3x+1)

Constant multiple rule of derivative of function f(x) is f(cx)=cf(x) where c is constant
