use logarithmic differentiation to find y=(x^2 = 1)^x

myininaya (myininaya):

i don't get the equation.

OpenStudy (anonymous):

y = (x^2 + 1)^x sorry about typo

myininaya (myininaya):

take ln of both sides

myininaya (myininaya):

$\ln(y)=\ln(x^2+1)^x$

myininaya (myininaya):

$\ln(y)=x \ln(x^2+1)$

myininaya (myininaya):

take derivative of both sides: $\frac{y'}{y}=1 \ln(x^2+1)+x \frac{2x}{x^2+1}$

myininaya (myininaya):

not multiply both sides by y

myininaya (myininaya):

$y'=y(\ln(x^2+1)+\frac{2x^2}{x^2+1})$

OpenStudy (anonymous):

wait how did you get the 1ln(x^2 +1).....

myininaya (myininaya):

$y'=(x^2+1)^x(\ln(x^2+1)+\frac{2x^2}{x^2+1})$

myininaya (myininaya):

i used product rule

myininaya (myininaya):

$(x \ln(x^2+1))'=(x)'\ln(x^2+1)+x[\ln(x^2+1)]'$

myininaya (myininaya):

$1 \ln(x^2+1)+x \frac{2x}{x^2+1}$

OpenStudy (anonymous):

okay I multiplied by y, now how can I simplify it?
