# Find the derivatives of the functions in Problems 1-32. Simplify and express the answer using positive exponents only. y = ( 5 − x 2 x 4 ) 3

To determine

To calculate: The simplified form of the derivative of y=(5x2x4)3.

Explanation

Given Information:

The provided function is y=(5x2x4)3.

Formula used:

According to the powers of x rule, if f(x)=xn, then,

f(x)=nxn1

According to the coefficient rule, if a function is of the form, g(x)=cf(x), then,

g(x)=cf(x)

According to the sum rule, if a function is of the form f(x)=u(x)+v(x), then,

f(x)=u(x)v(x)

According to the difference rule, if a function is of the form f(x)=u(x)v(x), then,

f(x)=u(x)+v(x)

According to the quotient rule, if f(x)=u(x)v(x), then,

f(x)=u(x)v(x)v(x)u(x)[v(x)]2

The derivative of a constant value, k, is

ddx(k)=0

According to the chain rule, if a function is of the form y=un, where u=g(x),

dydx=nun1dudx

Calculation:

Consider the provided function,

y=(5x2x4)3

Let, (5x2x4) to be u,

y=u3

Differentiate both sides with respect to x,

y=ddx(u3)

Simplify by the use of power of x rule,

y=3u31dudx=3u2dudx

Substitute (5x2x4) for u,

y=3(5x2x4)2ddx(5x2x4)

Simplify the internal derivative ddx(5x2x4) by the use of quotient rule and the difference rule,

y=3(5x2x4)2((ddx(5x2))(x4)(ddx(x4))(5x2)(x
