If y = x ,  find  y ' .

To determine

To calculate: The value of y for the function y=x.

Explanation

Given Information:

The function is y=x.

Formula used:

Power of x rule for function f(x)=xn is f(x)=nxn1, where n is a real number.

If any nonzero real number a has a negative integer n as its exponent then an=1an.

Calculation:

Consider the function,

y=x

Rewrite the function as,

y=x1/2

Differentiate both sides with respect to x,

dydx=ddx(
