To determine

To calculate: The derivative of the function f(x)=log2x.

Explanation

Given information:

The provided function is f(x)=log2x.

Formula used:

The derivative of the log to base b of a function is ddxlogbu=1ulnbdudx.

And the derivative of the function using power rule, y=xn is dydx=nxn1.

Calculation:

Consider the provided function f(x)=log2x,

To calculate the derivative of the function f(x)=log2x.

Apply the derivative of the log to base b of a function is ddxlogbu=1ulnbdudx
