The first one like you need to work with ln(y)= (a^x)ln x.

The others, just calculate two or three derivatives and see if you can spot a pattern.

For [tex]y= x^{(a^x)}[/tex], take the logarithm of both sides:

ln(y)= a

(You will need to use the chain rule on the left side and the product rule on the right.)

i mean i know how to do the first one nowHallsofIvy said:

ln(y)= a^{x}ln(x). Now differentiate both sides, with respect to x.

Then note that (x + p)' = 1.

For example: [tex]y' = \left( \frac{1}{x + p} \right)' = -\frac{1}{(x + p) ^ 2}[/tex]

[tex]y'' = (y')' = -\left( \frac{1}{(x + p) ^ 2} \right)' = 2\frac{1}{(x + p) ^ 3}[/tex]

So [tex]y ^ {(n)} \ = \ ?[/tex]

-----------------------

For #3, you need to arrange [tex]\frac{ax + b}{cx + d}[/tex] into something like: [tex]C + \frac{A}{cx + d}[/tex], where C, and A = const.

Then you just do the same like #2.

-----------------------

For #4, you can try to take 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, ... derivative of the function and see the rule.

Note that 2sin(x)cos(x) = sin(2x).

1. ln y = a^x lnxmousesgr said:

3. nth derivaive of (ax+b)/(cx+d)

4. nth derivaive of y = sin (^2) x

y'/y = [xa^(x-1)]lnx + [(1/x)a^x]

y' = y[[xa^(x-1)]lnx + [(1/x)a^x]]

2. -1(x+p)^-2

too lazyt to do the rest..
