# How do you differentiate #f(x)=ln(x(x^2+1)/(2x^3-1)^(1/2)) #?

Note that in general, using the chain rule:

Using the properties of logarithms we have:

and as the derivative is linear:

Then, based on (1):

To differentiate the function ( f(x) = \ln\left(\frac{x(x^2+1)}{(2x^3-1)^{\frac{1}{2}}}\right) ), you would use the chain rule and the properties of logarithmic functions. The steps are as follows:

- Apply the quotient rule to differentiate the inside function ( \frac{x(x^2+1)}{(2x^3-1)^{\frac{1}{2}}} ).
- Differentiate the numerator and denominator separately.
- Apply the chain rule to the denominator when differentiating.
- Combine the results using the properties of logarithmic functions.

Here's the result:

[ f'(x) = \frac{1}{\frac{x(x^2+1)}{(2x^3-1)^{\frac{1}{2}}}} \times \left(\frac{d}{dx}\left(\frac{x(x^2+1)}{(2x^3-1)^{\frac{1}{2}}}\right)\right) ]

[ = \frac{1}{\frac{x(x^2+1)}{(2x^3-1)^{\frac{1}{2}}}} \times \left(\frac{(x^2 + 1)(2x^3 - 1)^{\frac{1}{2}} - x \cdot \frac{1}{2}(2x^3 - 1)^{-\frac{1}{2}}(6x^2)}{(2x^3-1)}\right) ]

[ = \frac{(2x^3 - 1)^{\frac{1}{2}}((x^2 + 1) - 3x^2)}{x(x^2+1)} ]

[ = \frac{(2x^3 - 1)^{\frac{1}{2}}(1 - 2x^2)}{x(x^2+1)} ]

[ = \frac{(2x^3 - 1)^{\frac{1}{2}} - 2x^3(2x^3 - 1)^{\frac{1}{2}}}{x(x^2+1)} ]

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.
