3
Harder Differentiation We have differentiated terms of the form where n is a positive integer. e.g. The Rule for Differentiation The same rule holds when n is negative or a fraction.

4
Harder Differentiation e.g. 2 Find the gradient function, if Solution: e.g. 1 N.B. 3 1

5
Harder Differentiation Exercises Differentiate the following: Ans:

6
Harder Differentiation To differentiate a term like we need to change it to a constant multiplied by the variable. We use one of the laws of indices:

7
Harder Differentiation e.g.1 Find the gradient function of Solution:

8
Harder Differentiation This answer can be left like this or written as e.g. 2 Differentiate Solution: We don’t start to differentiate until all the terms are in the right form Only the x has a negative index so the 2 doesn’t move!

9
Harder Differentiation Exercises Differentiate the following: 1. 2.

10
Harder Differentiation Another rule of indices enables us to differentiate expressions containing roots such as

11
Harder Differentiation Solution: This answer can be left like this or: e.g. 1 Differentiate Using

12
Harder Differentiation Solution: e.g. 2 Differentiate We can leave the answer in either form

13
Harder Differentiation SUMMARY The rule for differentiating can be used for using
