Derivative of ln(ln x)

  1. Mar 5, 2012 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    Differentiate $$ln(lnx)$$

    2. Relevant equations



    3. The attempt at a solution
    My solution:
    Let $f(x)=lnx$, since${d/dx}ln f(x)={f'(x)/f(x)}$,
    ${d/dx}ln(lnx)={{1/x}/lnx}/times {1/x}
    ={1/x^2lnx}$.

    Surround your LaTeX code with either ## or $$. A single $ doesn't work. This is deliberate, because it would have confused people who don't use LaTeX but write stuff about money. LaTeX guide for the forum.

    ##e^x##
    $$x^n$$
    [itex]\int f(x)dx[/itex]
    [tex]\frac{df}{dx}[/tex]

    Wow! All this time I have been using "itex" and "tex"!
