Derivative of lnx= (1/x)*(derivative of x)


Find derivative of ln2x

d(ln2x)/dx = (1/2x)*d(2x)/dx = (1/2x)*2===>1/x

When the problem is like ln2x^2 or ln-square root of x...., the answer won't come out in form of 1/x.

What is the Second derivative of lnx?


What is the derivative of lnx raised to lnx?

start by setting y=lnx^lnx take ln of both sides lny=lnx(ln(lnx)) differentiate dy/dx(1/y)=(1+ln(lnx))/x dy/dx=y(1+ln(lnx))/x we know that y=lnx^lnx so we can just substatute back in dy/dx=(lnx^lnx)*(1+ln(lnx))/x

What is the derivative of log x-2?

The formula for finding the derivative of a log function of any "a" base is (dy/dx)log base a (x) = 1/((x)ln(a)) If we're talking about base "e" (natural logs) the answer is 1/(x-2) I think you're asking for the derivative of y = logx2. It's (-logx2)/(x(lnx)).

How do you find derivative of x2lnx?

start by differentiating each component d/dx [x2]=2x d/dx [lnx]=1/x product rule 2xlnx+x2/x simplify (factoring) x[2ln(x)+1]

How do you solve for x when the natural log of the square root of x equals the square root of the natural log of x?

ln(√x)=√(lnx) because √x = x^(1/2), ln(x^(1/2))=√(lnx) using a logarithmic property, we can say that .5(lnx)=√(lnx) now, pretend that lnx=y .5y=√y square both sides .25y^2=y subtract y from both sides .25y^2 -y=0 factor y(.25y - 1)=0 so either y=0 or .25y -1 =0 If .25y -1=0, then y=4 so lnx=0 or lnx=4 lnx cannot equal zero because lnx=0 means e^x=0 and that is impossible. Now, we are left with lnx=4 Isolate x by making both sides of the equation powers of e: e^(lnx)=e^4 x=e^4, which is approximately 54.6 Lastly, check this answer by plugging e^4 back into the original equation: ln(√(e^4))=√(ln(e^4)) ln(e^2)=√(4(lne)) 2lne=2√1 2(1)=2 2=2 There you go!
