#### Solutions

Chapter 3.1, Problem 17E
To determine

## To find:The differentiation of the given function

Expert Solution

Differentiating the function is dydx=5(12)5(x)4

### Explanation of Solution

Given:

The function is

f(x)=(12x)5

Concept used:

Definition of the differentiation:-Differentiation is the action of computing a derivative

The derivative of a function y=f(x) of a variable x is a measure of the rate at which the value y of the function changes with respect to x

Calculation:

The function

f(x)=(12x)5...................(1)

The derivative of a function

y=f(x)y=f(x)=dydx

Differentiating the equation (1) with respect to x

dydx=ddx(12x)5dydx=(12)5ddx(x)5dydx=5(12)5(x)4
