The Power Rule 🙂
It is the rule that helps you find the derivative of a variable raised to a power. 🤔
When doing so you are finding the velocity of the derivative and the prime, f'(x)=nxn-1 😳
What this basically means is that with f'(x)=nxn-1 In order to find the prime there are steps to take, the first one being to use the original which is f'(x)=xn 😮
When using f’(x)=xn, what you have to do first is take the n and put it in front of the x meaning for example if there was a problem where: f(x)=x4 Using the first step, now it would be F’(x)=4x4 (leave the exponent alone for now that will be explained in the next slide). 😧
Now we come into terms with f’(x)=xn-1 Like the first example F’(x)=4xn-1 Now what has to be done is subtract the exponent by one, meaning that the exponent is 4, -1= 3 F’(x)=4x3 being the final result. 🤔
