Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. What is the derivative of 'y = 3x squared'?

The example illustrates the Power Rule for derivatives. Using the rule, you multiply the power of x by the constant before x and reduce the power of x by one to get the derivative.
2. What is the derivative of 'f(y) = 2y to the power of one third'?

Answer: two thirds y to the power of negative two thirds

The Power Rule as in the first question: multiply the power of x by the constant before x and reduce the power of x by one to get the derivative.
3. What is the derivative of 'y = 2x squared - 3x + 4'?

This derivative can be found using the Sum Rule.
4. What is the derivative of 'y = (2x + 3)squared'?

This is an example of how a Chain Rule is used. Firstly, you take the power of the bracket and multiply it by the bracket itself taking one power off the bracket. Then you take the derivative of the expression inside the bracket and multiply it by the number in front of the bracket.
5. What is the derivative of 'f(x) = x(x + 1)'?

This can be solved using either the Product Rule or by multiplying x through the bracket and using the Sum Rule.
