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

Use the product rule to show that dx^n-1/dx = (n-1)x^n-2

2. Relevant equations

The general idea is..

If: h(x) = f(x)g(x)

Then: dh(x)/dx = f(x)dg(x)/dx + g(x)df(x)/d(x)

3. The attempt at a solution

It seems like a simple solution but everytime I attempt solving it I get confused and end up with a totally wrong answer
