# Finding Second Derivatives In Exercises 57-62, find the second derivative of the function. f ( x ) = 2 + x 3 ln x

To determine

To calculate: The value of second order derivative of the function f(x)=2+x3lnx.

Explanation

Given information:

The provided function is f(x)=2+x3lnx.

Formula used:

Product rule of derivative of differentiable functions, f(x) and g(x) is:

ddx[f(x)g(x)]=f(x)g(x)+f(x)g(x).

Let u be a differentiable function of x then, ddx[lnx]=1x,x>0 and ddx(lnu)=1ududx,u>0.

The derivative of function f(x)=un using the chain rule is:

f(x)=ddx(un)=nun1dudx

Where, u is the function of x.

Calculation:

Consider the function,

f(x)=2+x3lnx

Apply the product rule of derivative to the function x3lnx,

The first order derivative of function f(x)=2+x3lnx is,

f(x)=ddx(2+x3lnx)=ddx(2)+ddx(x3lnx)=0+(x3ddx(lnx)+lnx
