1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
Define the contravariant derivative X$^{a|b}$ of X$^{a}$ with repect to x$^{b}$

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

X$^{a|b}$= $\partial X^{a}$/$\partial x^{b}$ + $\Gamma^{ab}$$_{p}$ X$^{p}$

Does that make sense/ is it right?
