We'll use the rule of exponentials: (a^b)^c=a^(b*c) Following the rule, we'll get: (x^3)^1/5 = x^(3/5) Now, we'll differentiate using the rule of rational exponents: df/dx = 2*(3/5)*x^(3/5 -...

• Math
A way to solve this problem is to expand the cube first and to differentiate with respect to x. ( x^2 + 2 )^3 = x^6+8+6x^2*( x^2 + 2 ) ( x^2 + 2 )^3 = x^6+6x^4+12x^2+8 Now we'll differentiate:...
