## Main Question or Discussion Point

For a function such as

w=5x

How would you find the partial derivative of w with respect to y or z? I've tried using basic logarithmic differentiation, but can't arrive at the correct answer. For reference, the correct answer is

w

w=5x

^{y/z}How would you find the partial derivative of w with respect to y or z? I've tried using basic logarithmic differentiation, but can't arrive at the correct answer. For reference, the correct answer is

w

_{y}=5*(x^{y/z}/z)*ln(x)
