(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

f(x)=(1/2)*(x^T)*(A)*(x)-(x^T)*(b)

Show that the gradient of f(x) is (1/2)*[((A^T)+A)*x]-(b)

where x^transpose is transpose of x and A^transpose is transpose of A.

Note: A is real matrix n*n and b is a column matrix n

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

I need to kinda proof that.
