This is a concept that confuses me. If you have a function where f(x) = ln(u)^k (where u is a function and k is an unknown constant), then how would you solve for the derivative? I've already guessed it would be(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

f'(x) = [kln(u)^(k-1)](1/u)(u')

Is that right?
