Steg _l_:_ We first prove the theorem in the case m = 1. Let f(x) = xn for X> 0. Then the inverse function to f, denoted g(y), is the nth root function. By the theorem on the derivative of an inverse function, g'(y) exists and I _. g (Y) " fn(x) I where x = g(y). Now f'(x) = nxn"l .

Let r 23 a rational constant; let h(x) = xr for x > 0. Then h, is differentiable and h'(x) = rxr‘l. we will give a different proof of this theorem later on, one which holds When r is an arbitrary real constant. ...

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
