    sqrt(2x)= (2x)^0.5 = 2^0.5*x^0.5

    differentiate that

    Here's a clue:
    1/x = x^-1
    1/x^2 = x^-2
    etc.

    God it's the chat forum. Get out of it :rolleyes: There is a maths forum yunno.

    When something is square rooted it's the same as putting it to the power 1/2.

    I was doing this yesterday. And I've half forgotten.

    Isn't the square root of X the same as X to the power 1 over 2 (2th root of X to the power of 1)? So differentiate X^1/2. So 1/2X^-1/2.
