# Differentiation watch

1. does anyone know how to differentiate the sq root of (2x)
2. No.
3. You can differentiate square roots now?

What a world we live in.
4. sqrt(2x)= (2x)^0.5 = 2^0.5*x^0.5

differentiate that
5. thanks but any idea why the answer is supposed to be 1/sqrt[2x] ?
6. Here's a clue:
1/x = x^-1
1/x^2 = x^-2
etc.
7. God it's the chat forum. Get out of it There is a maths forum yunno.

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

How rude.
The chat room is meant to be for light chat and fun. Most don't see maths as fun.

(I shall look forward to teaching these people in my years to come...)
10. Chat room is for spam.
11. 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.
12. Well done, we have a winner.
13. Was that sarcastic?
14. Nope. I'm never sarcastic.
15. I wonder if anyone can differentiate between LH's face and a Hippotamus
16. I wonder too sometimes.
