UNC-Wilmington ECN 321 Department of Economics and Finance Dr. Chris Dumas Calculus Review Example Problems Find the following derivatives or partial derivatives. 1) Find dy/dx for y = 23*ln(5x) 2) Find dy/dx for y = 43x - 6x 6 - 5*(3x - 7) 3 (hint: use the "chain rule" on the (3x - 7) 3 part) 3) Find y/ x for y = 5 - 6x - 4z 2 (hint : notice that this is a partial derivative) 4) Careful !! Find x/ y for y = 5 - 6x - 4p 2 (hint: rearrange the equation to get x alone on the left-hand side of the equation, then
