What is the nth derivative of nx^n?
The first derivative is
The second derivative is
The third derivative is
Interestingly, the nth derivative would be
where x^(n-n) is x^0, which is equal to 1, so that term kind of “diappears”….
The other factors can be looked upon in the reverse order and you would get:
n^2 can be broken down into (n)(n).
Hence the nth derivative is
n! times n or ….. nn!
Good answer 🙂 @thecalculuskid
So, what do you think pin?
Do I get the point? 😉
Yes, great answer.
