# In Problems 13-24, find the indicated derivative.Find f ( 4 ) ( x )  if  f ( x ) = x

To determine

To calculate: The value of f(4)(x) for the function, f(x)=x.

Explanation

Given Information:

The function is f(x)=x.

Formula used:

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

f(x)=nxn1

The derivative of a constant value, k, is

ddx(k)=0

Calculation:

Consider the provided function,

f(x)=x=(x)12

In order to get f(1) differentiate both sides with respect to x,

f(1)(x)=ddx((x)12)

Apply the power rule of derivatives,

f(1)(x)=12(x121)=12x12=x122

To get the value of f(2)(x), differentiate both sides of f(1)(x) with respect to x,

f(2)(x)=ddx(x122)=12ddx(x12)

Apply the power rule of derivatives,

f(2)(x)=12(12x121)=x32
