Find the derivatives of each of the following functions. Give answers in factored form where possible. Homework Help ✎
k(x) = (x − 3)1/2 (x + 1)3
To find the derivative of most of these composite functions, you will need to employ more than one shortcut: Power Rule, Chain Rule, Product Rule, Quotient Rule, and everything you know about the derivatives of trig functions and exponential functions.
Don't confuse inverse trig with reciprocal trig functions.
sin− 1 x = arcsinx
