# In Exercises 17-40, find the derivative of the given function. [HINT: See Example 1 and 2.] t ( x ) = 3 | x | − x

To determine

To calculate: The derivative of function t(x)=3|x|x.

Explanation

Given Information:

The provided function is t(x)=3|x|x.

Formula used:

Difference rule of derivative, [fg](x)=f(x)g(x)

Constant multiple rule, f(cx)=cf(x) where c is constant.

Derivative of a function f(x)=xn with the help of power rule is f(x)=nxn1.

Derivative of function f(x)=|x| is |x|x, where x0.

Calculation:

Consider the function, t(x)=3|x|x.

Convert function to power form as,

t(x)=3|x|x12

Apply difference rule of derivative,

t(x)=ddx(3|x|)
