For a function such as(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

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)
