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

So f(x)= x(√x-1)

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

So i understand that the derivitive of a mutiple is (f x g) prime

f'xg + fxg'

I got

(1)(√x-1) + (x)(1/2x^-1/2)

now im stuck...

ive used the equation (f(x)-f(x))/x-a and i ended up with x^3/2 -1

but when i used (f')(g)+(f)(g)'

i get 3/2x^1/2 - 1

and now i am just really confused... i could really use some help :D
