# If a function has the form y = [ u ( x ) ] n , where n is a constant, we begin to find the derivative by using the_____ Rule and then use the_____ Rule to find the derivative of [ u ( x ) ] n .

To determine

To fill: The incomplete statement, ‘if a function has the form y=[u(x)]nv(x), where n is a constant, we begin to find the derivative by using the ___ Rule and then use the ___ Rule to find the derivative of [u(x)]n.’

Explanation

Consider the incomplete statement, ‘if a function has the form y=[u(x)]nv(x), where n is a constant, we begin to find the derivative by using the ___ Rule and then use the ___ Rule to find the derivative of [u(x)]n.’

Consider the provided function,

y=[u(x)]nv(x)

Differentiate both sides with respect to x,

dydx=ddx([u(x)]nv(x))

According to the product rule, a function, y=fg is differentiated as,

dydx=gddx(f)+fddx(g)

Thus, to solve the derivative
