Differentiate the functions in Problems 3-20. h ( x ) = 3 4 ( x 5 − 2 x 3 + 5 ) 8

To determine

To calculate: The derivative of the function h(x)=34(x52x3+5)8.

Explanation

Given Information:

The provided function is h(x)=34(x52x3+5)8.

Formula used:

Power rule for a real number n is such that, if y=un then dydx=nun1dudx, where u is a differentiable function of 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).

Constant function rule for a constant c is such that, if f(x)=c then f(x)=0.

Calculation:

Consider the function,

h(x)=34(x52x3+5)8

Consider (x52x3+5) to be u,

h(x)=34u8

Differentiate both sides with respect to x,

h(x)=ddx(34u8)=34ddx(u8)

Use the power rule,

h(x)=348u81dudx=32u7dudx=6u7dudx
