$\frac{d}{dx}\left(4x^{- \frac{1}{2}}\right)$

Learn how to solve problems step by step online. Find the derivative d/dx(4/(x^(1/2))). Rewrite the exponent using the power rule \frac{a^m}{a^n}=a^{m-n}, where in this case m=0. Multiply the fraction and term in - \frac{1}{2}. The derivative of a function multiplied by a constant is equal to the constant times the derivative of the function. The power rule for differentiation states that if n is a real number and f(x) = x^n, then f'(x) = nx^{n-1}.

##  Final answer to the problem

$\frac{-2}{\sqrt{x^{3}}}$
