    Sorry its the first expression. I differentiated 3x ^ 5/2 - 12x ^ 3/2 + 12x ^ 1/2
    Correct.

    Dy/dx = 15/2x ^ 3/2 - 18x ^ 1/2 + 6x ^ -1/2
    Again, correct.

    So, what do you get when you substitute x=3 into this? You may find it helpful to write down

    15/2 * (3)^(3/2) - 18 * 3^(1/2) + 6* 3^(-1/2) and then simplify from there by pulling out common factors.

    Good, it'd take me too long to adjust if you did. I get confused very easily.
