You literally saves my… I’m studying on a distance course in a foreign language, teacher extremely unpedagogical the few times we see her. Same thing every time, I understand absolutely nothing after lessons, then I go home and watch a few videos that a guy on the other side of the planet has made and share with us for free and slowly I begin to grasp. It’not easy, it’s a slow process, grades not the best but I do push through somehow, thanks to you!

so im having trouble with the derivative of 6*x^(1/2) in the equation
5x^3 – 2/(x^2) + 6*x^(1/2) – 18

I got 15x^2 + 4x^-3 + 3x^(-1/2)
but then i looked up a derivative calculator and got 3/x^(1/2) which makes no sense to me after following the derivative rules.

While i was doing my homework on basic derivatives i thought i heard you say that 0 to the 0 power is undefined.
Is that a stupid question asking you that.
btw you are really good at explaining things.
If it wasnt for this video i would of gotten a F on my homework so…. Thx!
i understand how to do basic derivatives because of you

This is a good video; i like how you thoroughly explained the process of finding derivatives. The only problem i have is when i couldnt see what you were explaining for #8 (because your arm was in the way)

So awesome!!! And who would dislike this video? Gosh people

@actionjessie happy to help : ) especially since you have a joy division song on your profile

Patrick, you’re starting too be sexier than Sal Khan x Thank you for making my engineer dreams come to fruition

@patrickJMT i have no idea, i have trouble with that too. so how would i go about this?

i have no idea, i have trouble with that too. so how would i go about this/.

@awefilledcreep how did you go from – 2/(x^2) to + 4x^-3?

so im having trouble with the derivative of 6*x^(1/2) in the equation

5x^3 – 2/(x^2) + 6*x^(1/2) – 18

I got 15x^2 + 4x^-3 + 3x^(-1/2)

help please and thank you

@socerplayer23 dont mess with zero, it will haunt you forever >.>

Great explanation, but i never understood what are d/dx

gula

@socerplayer23 good question

thanks so much!!

I love your videos man, fucking love them.

YOU SIR, ARE A LIFE SAVER

@socerplayer23 why are you asking that question on this video though?

@patrickJMT I was wondering because i thought it was 1

@socerplayer23 what should it be?

why is 0 to the 0 power undefined?

This is a good video; i like how you thoroughly explained the process of finding derivatives. The only problem i have is when i couldnt see what you were explaining for #8 (because your arm was in the way)

Thanks for the video

@joesl8 i like them both!

@patrickJMT

Thanks for clearing this up! BTW I prefer pie to pi.

@joesl8 first, it is pi, not pie. and pi is a number, not a variable so the derivative of pi to any power is zero.
