MathWe'll use logarithmic differentiation: y = (2x)^sqrt x We'll take logarithms both sides: ln y = ln [(2x)^sqrt x] ln y = sqrt x * ln (2x) We'll differentiate both sides, using product rule to the...

MathFind the equation of the tangent line to the inverse derivative of f(x)=x^3+7x+2 in the point (10;1)To determine the inverse of the derivative, we'll have to determine the derivative. f'(x) = (x^3+7x+2)' f'(x) = 3x^2 + 7 We know that: f'(x)*[f^1(x)]' = 1 We'll divide by f'(x): [f^1(x)]' =...

MathSince it is an improper integral, we'll evaluate it using the definition of improper integrals: Int f(x)dx (x = a to x = infinite) = lim (N > infinite) Int f(x)dx( x = a to x = N) According to...

MathWe need the integral of f(x) = (sin 5x)^3 (sin 5x)^3 = sin 5x * (sin 5x)^2 => sin 5x ( 1  (cos 5x)^2) Now let cos 5x = t dt/dx = 5 sin 5x Int [ sin 5x ( 1  (cos 5x)^2) dx] => Int [ (1/5)...

MathWe have to differentiate y = (x^37x^2+4)(3x^2+14) Now y = (x^37x^2+4)(3x^2+14) => y' = (x^37x^2+4)'(3x^2+14) + (x^37x^2+4)(3x^2+14)' => y' = (3x^2 14x)(3x^2 + 14) + (x^37x^2+4)*6x =>...

MathThe derivative of f(x) is defined as lim h>0 [ f (x+h)  f(x)]/h Here f(x) = 9  3x Substituting this in lim h>0 [ f (x+h)  f(x)]/h => lim h>0 [ 93(x+h)  9 + 3x]/h => lim...
