To find the derivative of ( f(x) = \log_5(x) ), you can use the logarithmic differentiation technique. The derivative is ( f'(x) = \frac{1}{x \ln(5)} ).

To find the derivative of ( f(x) = \log_5(x) ), we can use the logarithmic differentiation technique. First, we express the function in terms of natural logarithms using the change of base formula:

[ \log_5(x) = \frac{\ln(x)}{\ln(5)} ]

Now, we can differentiate both sides of the equation with respect to ( x ):

[ \frac{d}{dx}(\log_5(x)) = \frac{d}{dx}\left(\frac{\ln(x)}{\ln(5)}\right) ]

Using the quotient rule for differentiation, we get:

[ \frac{d}{dx}(\log_5(x)) = \frac{1}{\ln(5)} \cdot \frac{d}{dx}(\ln(x)) ]

The derivative of ( \ln(x) ) with respect to ( x ) is ( \frac{1}{x} ), so substituting that in:

[ \frac{d}{dx}(\log_5(x)) = \frac{1}{\ln(5)} \cdot \frac{1}{x} ]

Therefore, the derivative of ( f(x) = \log_5(x) ) is:

[ f'(x) = \frac{1}{x \cdot \ln(5)} ]

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.
