If 𝑦 equals two sin three plus eight 𝑥, determine d𝑦 d𝑥.
00:00:07.280 --> 00:00:11.600
So in order to determine d𝑦 d𝑥, we’re gonna have to differentiate our function.
00:00:12.160 --> 00:00:19.480
And in order to do this, what we actually have to use is a couple of general rules to help us out.
00:00:20.160 --> 00:00:27.240
Well first of all, we’ve got that if 𝑦 is equal to sin 𝑥, then we know that d𝑦 d𝑥 is gonna be equal to cos 𝑥.
00:00:27.640 --> 00:00:31.680
So if we differentiate sin 𝑥 we, get cos 𝑥.
00:00:32.240 --> 00:00:32.840
Okay?
00:00:33.360 --> 00:00:38.000
This is really useful cause it helps us understand what’s gonna to happen to our sin 𝑥.
00:00:38.520 --> 00:00:42.960
However, if we look at our function, it’s in a slightly different form.
00:00:43.480 --> 00:00:49.440
Our function is more in a form like this, so we’ve got that 𝑦 is equal to 𝑎 sin 𝑓 𝑥.
00:00:50.000 --> 00:01:02.960
Well because if we look at our function, what we’ve got is 𝑎, so we’ve got a constant, so it’s two, and we got sin, and then we’ve got a function, so we’ve got three plus eight 𝑥.
00:01:03.480 --> 00:01:14.440
So if we have it in this form, we can say that d𝑦 d𝑥 gonna be equal to 𝑎 multiplied by the derivative of the function inside our function multiplied by the cosine of that function.
00:01:15.040 --> 00:01:16.280
Okay, great.
00:01:16.960 --> 00:01:24.240
So now that we’ve got this, we can go on and differentiate 𝑦 equals two sin three plus eight 𝑥.
00:01:24.240 --> 00:01:27.760
So we’ve got 𝑦 equals two sin three plus eight 𝑥.
00:01:28.480 --> 00:01:36.400
So therefore, if we now apply the rule that we looked at which was how we worked out what d𝑦 d𝑥 would be for function in this form.
00:01:36.920 --> 00:01:45.280
And actually, by the way, this actually comes from the chain rule, so we’ve actually used the chain rule to get this.
00:01:45.720 --> 00:01:59.720
We’re gonna get d𝑦 d𝑥 is equal to two multiplied by derivative of three plus eight 𝑥 with respect to 𝑥 multiplied by the cosine of three plus eight 𝑥, which is gonna be equal to two multiplied by eight multiplied by the cosine of three plus eight 𝑥.
00:02:00.200 --> 00:02:10.920
And we actually got this because if we differentiate with respect to 𝑥 three plus eight 𝑥, what we’re actually gonna get is zero plus eight, which is just eight.
00:02:11.520 --> 00:02:16.520
That’s because if we differentiate an integer, we just get zero.
00:02:17.200 --> 00:02:20.920
And if we differentiate eight 𝑥, we got eight multiplied by the exponent.
00:02:21.400 --> 00:02:26.040
So that’s gonna be eight multiplied by one, so that just gives us eight.
00:02:26.680 --> 00:02:38.520
And then it’s 𝑥 to the power of — then you subtract one from the exponent, so one minus one, which would be 𝑥 to the power of zero, which would just give us one, so we’re just left with eight.
00:02:39.000 --> 00:02:39.680
Okay, great!
00:02:40.160 --> 00:02:45.400
so one more step, and then we can find our d𝑦 d𝑥.
00:02:45.960 --> 00:02:49.560
So therefore, if we multiply two by eight, we get 16.
00:02:50.040 --> 00:03:00.760
So we can say that if 𝑦 equals two sin three plus eight 𝑥, d𝑦 d𝑥 is gonna be equal to 16 cos three plus eight 𝑥.
