I assume you are to continue and find the derivative of f(x) with respect to x using first principles?

Using the given function definition, we have $f$$\text{something}$$=\sqrt{\text{something}}$.

I have another teacher who I had for Statistics last Sem. She is such a good instructor and breaks down whatever she is teaching into steps. On the flip you get some mathematician who should be in industry, yet is in education and not if but when a student gets stumped, they simply act/say "well why are you stumped"? you should know this? and stuff like that. Translation = Not to be redundant but one who should be in industry and NOT education.
