Re: Really Difficult Differentiation! Help please!
So I think this would become nWYP^n1Pi^n+1? #27 20121128 06:54:00
Re: Really Difficult Differentiation! Help please!Hi; Please differentiate that right now. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #28 20121128 06:56:50
Re: Really Difficult Differentiation! Help please!
That is I think nPi^n+1? #29 20121128 07:00:14
Re: Really Difficult Differentiation! Help please!Please use brackets. Differentiate that please. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #30 20121128 07:02:15
Re: Really Difficult Differentiation! Help please!
Sorry: (n)(Pi)^(n+1) #31 20121128 07:08:36
Re: Really Difficult Differentiation! Help please!
That is not correct. Just follow the formula. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #32 20121128 08:43:09
Re: Really Difficult Differentiation! Help please!
Ok, thank you. #33 20121128 08:58:05
Re: Really Difficult Differentiation! Help please!Yes, you were right for x^2 but wrong for Pi^(n) which means you are not using the power rule or you are using it incorrectly. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #34 20121128 13:53:24
Re: Really Difficult Differentiation! Help please!
AHHHH! I get this, I think! So it is nPi^(n1) and before I was adding one!? #35 20121128 14:01:23
Re: Really Difficult Differentiation! Help please!That is correct! You have one more part to do. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #36 20121128 14:03:42
Re: Really Difficult Differentiation! Help please!
YAY! Thank you! #37 20121128 14:15:06
Re: Really Difficult Differentiation! Help please!
You left out an exponentiation sign in there. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #38 20121128 14:18:24
Re: Really Difficult Differentiation! Help please!Ah yes thank you bobby, sleep eyes. #39 20121128 14:21:33
Re: Really Difficult Differentiation! Help please!There is one more term to be differentiated. When we simplify it all up we will see. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #40 20121129 05:17:29
Re: Really Difficult Differentiation! Help please!Ok great! Now the last term, want to differentiate (YPi((Pi/P))^(n))/P. So for this I get (nYPi(Pi/P)^(n1))/P, but I know this is wrong because there are two Pi's and I am only doing one of them, how does this work?? #41 20121129 06:45:06

Re: Really Difficult Differentiation! Help please!The last term! #43 20121129 07:10:34
Re: Really Difficult Differentiation! Help please!The third term has a P in the denominator. I left it out because we concentrated on the numerator. So we are not done with the third term. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #44 20121129 07:26:47
Re: Really Difficult Differentiation! Help please!
I see, apologies for not making this clear: P and Pi are completely different things.... P could be Y or X for example! It just happens to represent something beginning with P! But Pi is what we want to differentiate with respect to! #45 20121129 07:39:05
Re: Really Difficult Differentiation! Help please!We differentiated that when the real problem is this: In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #46 20121129 07:42:25
Re: Really Difficult Differentiation! Help please!OH, so hwo do we do it? #47 20121129 07:47:03
Re: Really Difficult Differentiation! Help please!Since the P is a constant just take the answer you got and put it over P. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #48 20121129 07:55:15
Re: Really Difficult Differentiation! Help please!
Ok now I am just getting confused, so that answer I had was correct? #49 20121129 08:04:38

Re: Really Difficult Differentiation! Help please!Is there anyone here who can actually help me by explaining this methodically and quickly?
