In Problems 79 and 80, find the second derivatives. y = x − x 2

To determine

To calculate: The second derivative of the function y=xx2.

Explanation

Given Information:

The provided function is y=xx2.

Formula used:

Difference rule for function f(x)=u(x)v(x), where u and v are differentiable functions of x, then f(x)=u(x)v(x).

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

Coefficient rule for a constant c is such that, if f(x)=cu(x), where u(x) is a differentiable function of x, then f(x)=cu(x).

Calculation:

Consider the function,

y=xx2

Rewrite the function as,

y=x1/2x2

Differentiate both sides with respect to x,

dydx=ddx(x1/2x2)y=ddx(x1/2)ddx(x2)
