2nd, 3rd and 4th derivativesMy attempt at calculating these: a) d^2/(dx^2): ln(x+1) b) d^3/(dx^3): x^7 + 4x^6 - x^2 c) d^2/(dx^2): 1/(x + 1) d) d^4/(dx^4): cos(2x) a) Product rule: 1/x(x + 1) + ln(1)= 1 + 1/x + ln Linearity rule: -(1/x^2) + 1/x b) Linearity rule: 7x^6 + 6x^4 - 2x= 6(7x)^5 + 4(6x)^3 - 2= (5)(6)(7x)^4 + (3)(4)(6x)^2 = 210x^4 + 72x^2 c) Quotient rule: ((0)(x + 1) - (1)(1))/(x + 1)^2= -1/(x + 1)^2= ((0)(x+1)^2 - (-1)2(x + 1))/[(x + 1)^2]^2= (-2x - 2)/(x + 1)^4 d) the answer ends up being: cos(2x) + sin(2) I think Do these look valid? |
