Solutions

Chapter 3.1, Problem 18E
To determine

To find:

The differentiation of the given function

Expert Solution

Answer to Problem 18E

Differentiating the function is dydx=x(2x3)2(x23x+1)(x3)

Explanation of Solution

Given:

The function is

  f(x)=x23x+1x2

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)=x23x+1x2...................(1)

The derivative of a function

  y=f(x)y=f(x)=dydx

Differentiating the equation (1) with respect to x

  dydx=ddx(x23x+1x2)dydx=x2ddx(x23x+1)(x23x+1)ddxx2(x2)2dydx=x2(2x3)(x23x+1)(2x)(x4)dydx=x{x(2x3)(x23x+1)(2)}(x4)dydx=x(2x3)2(x23x+1)(x3)
