I was reading this ebook when I found Coulomb's law:

What I'm unsure of is how the gradient function applied to 1/|x-x'| is the same thing as |x-x'|/|x-x'|^3...

I know what the gradient function is but I'm totally lost as to how the formula was transformed that way..

Can anyone care to explain?

Thanks alot.
