Having some trouble understanding derivatives including numbers to the "X" power. For example, f(x)= 7^8^x, f'(x)=?
help please!

The derivative of natural log, or ln(x), is equal to 1/x.
To find the derivative of natural log, use the formula d/dx ln(x) = 1/x.
The graph of the derivative of natural log is a hyperbola with a vertical asymptote at x = 0 and a horizontal asymptote at y = 0.
The derivative of natural log is often used in calculus to solve problems involving exponential functions and growth rates.
Yes, the derivative of natural log can be negative for values of x less than 1, as the function ln(x) is decreasing for x < 1 and the derivative is equal to 1/x.
