How do you find the derivative of #y = (2x^4 - 3x) / (4x - 1)#?
Using the derivative rules we find that the answer is
- Label and derive the numerator and denominator
By applying the Power rule, constant rule, and sum and difference rules, we can derive both of these functions easily:
at this point we will use the Quotient rule which is:
Plug in your items:
From here you can simplify it to:
Thus the derivitive is the simplified answer.
