Find the derivatives of the functions in Problems 1-32. Simplify and express the answer using positive exponents only. y = x 4 4

To determine

To calculate: The simplified form of the derivative of y=x44.

Explanation

Given Information:

The function is y=x44.

Formula used:

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

f(x)=nxn1

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

g(x)=cf(x)

Calculation:

Consider the provided function,

y=x44

Differentiate both sides with respect to x,
