In Problems 19-26, find the derivative of each function. g ( x ) = 3 x 5 + 2 x 4 + 6 x 3

To determine

To calculate: The derivative of the function g(x)=3x5+2x4+6x3.

Explanation

Given Information:

The provided function is g(x)=3x5+2x4+6x3.

Formula Used:

Sum 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 a real number n is such that, if f(x)=xn then f(x)=nxn1.

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, g(x)=3x5+2x4+6x3

Differentiate with respect to x,

ddx[g(x)]=ddx(3x5+2x4+6x3)

Apply the sum rule of derivatives,

g(x)=ddx(<
