## Step by step solution

Problem

$\frac{d}{dx}\left(y=\frac{3}{x}-\frac{2}{x^2}+\frac{2}{3x^3}\right)$
1

Taking out the constant $3$ from the fraction's denominator

$\frac{d}{dx}\left(y=\frac{\frac{1}{3}\cdot\frac{2}{x^3}}{3}-\frac{2}{x^2}+\frac{3}{x}\right)$
2

Apply implicit differentiation by taking the derivative of both sides of the equation with respect to the differentiation variable

$\frac{d}{dx}\left(y\right)=\frac{d}{dx}\left(\frac{\frac{1}{3}\cdot\frac{2}{x^3}}{3}-\frac{2}{x^2}+\frac{3}{x}\right)$
3

The derivative of the constant function is equal to zero

$0=\frac{d}{dx}\left(\frac{\frac{1}{3}\cdot\frac{2}{x^3}}{3}-\frac{2}{x^2}+\frac{3}{x}\right)$
4

The derivative of a sum of two functions is the sum of the derivatives of each function

$0=\frac{d}{dx}\left(\frac{\frac{1}{3}\cdot\frac{2}{x^3}}{3}\right)+\frac{d}{dx}\left(-\frac{2}{x^2}\right)+\frac{d}{dx}\left(\frac{3}{x}\right)$
5

The derivative of a function multiplied by a constant is equal to the constant times the derivative of the function

$0=\frac{d}{dx}\left(\frac{\frac{1}{3}\cdot\frac{2}{x^3}}{3}\right)-\frac{d}{dx}\left(\frac{2}{x^2}\right)+\frac{d}{dx}\left(\frac{3}{x}\right)$
6

Applying the quotient rule which states that if $f(x)$ and $g(x)$ are functions and $h(x)$ is the function defined by ${\displaystyle h(x) = \frac{f(x)}{g(x)}}$, where ${g(x) \neq 0}$, then ${\displaystyle h'(x) = \frac{f'(x) \cdot g(x) - g'(x) \cdot f(x)}{g(x)^2}}$

$0=\frac{3\frac{d}{dx}\left(\frac{1}{3}\cdot\frac{2}{x^3}\right)-\frac{1}{3}\cdot\frac{2}{x^3}\cdot\frac{d}{dx}\left(3\right)}{9}-\frac{d}{dx}\left(\frac{2}{x^2}\right)+\frac{d}{dx}\left(\frac{3}{x}\right)$
