differentiate the following function using both the quotient and product rule with respect to their independent variable(s) and simplify your answer

2. Relevant equations

AC= (Q+1)^(0.5) / Q

3. The attempt at a solution

product rule:

dac/dQ = [(Q+1)^(0.5) x (-q^-2) ] + [ 0.5(Q+1)^(1/2) ]

dac/dQ = Q^(-1.5) + 1 + 0.5(Q+1)^(1/2)
