To find the derivative of ( g(x) = \frac{1}{\sqrt{x}} ), you can use the power rule for differentiation, which states that the derivative of ( x^n ) with respect to ( x ) is ( nx^{n-1} ). Apply this rule to the given function:

[ g'(x) = \frac{d}{dx} \left( \frac{1}{\sqrt{x}} \right) ]

[ = \frac{d}{dx} \left( x^{-\frac{1}{2}} \right) ]

[ = -\frac{1}{2}x^{-\frac{1}{2} - 1} ]

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

[ = -\frac{1}{2\sqrt{x^3}} ]

Therefore, the derivative of ( g(x) = \frac{1}{\sqrt{x}} ) is ( g'(x) = -\frac{1}{2\sqrt{x^3}} ).

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.
