Find the derivative of

y = sqrt(X^{X})

3. The attempt at a solution

I tried using the equation d/dx (a^{x}) = a^{x}* ln a

Is this even a right start? The square root kind of throws me off. I'm not sure if this is the right equation to use or not. I was told the answer was

X^{x}/ (2*sqrt(X^{x})) but i'm not even sure how to get there given the answer. any hints or help? :(
