    How would you differentiate and integrate 8/√x ?
    Also how would you integrate 6/x^2 ?

    Thanks

    What have you got so far?

    Hint: write the expressions in the form  a x ^ n

    you know  \sqrt x = x^{1/2} right?

    Not quite. Do you know how to differentiate something like  3x^2 ? Consider what rule you're using, and apply that to this question.

    \frac{8}{\sqrt{x}} = \frac{8}{x^\frac{1}{2}} = \frac{8}{1} \times \frac{1}{x^\frac{1}{2}} = 8x^{-\frac{1}{2}} From here you can use the standard differentiation power rule. The rearranging is the same idea in the second question, then you can do the standard add 1 to the power and then divide by the new power rule.

    No, not sure how you got there, try using \frac{a}{x^n} = ax^{-n}

    sqrx=x^1/2 so 4sqrx=4x^1/2

    Just rewrite them both using powers.
    square root x = x^1/2
    etc..

    Also, just remember: 8/√x is = 8 * 1/√x
    and dont forget the +C when integrating XD until you come to C2.
