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

Learn how to solve differential calculus problems step by step online. Find the derivative of (9-x^2)^(-1/2). The power rule for differentiation states that if n is a real number and f(x) = x^n, then f'(x) = nx^{n-1}. The derivative of a sum of two or more functions is the sum of the derivatives of each function. The derivative of the constant function (9) is equal to zero. The derivative of a function multiplied by a constant is equal to the constant times the derivative of the function.

### Main Topic: Differential Calculus

The derivative of a function of a real variable measures the sensitivity to change of a quantity (a function value or dependent variable) which is determined by another quantity (the independent variable). Derivatives are a fundamental tool of calculus.
