• 1.

### Differentiate y=2x4-4x+5

• A.

8x4-4x

• B.

8x3-4

• C.

24x3+4

• D.

8x4+4x

• E.

None of the above

B. 8x3-4
Explanation
The given expression is y=2x^4-4x+5. To differentiate this expression, we need to find the derivative with respect to x. Taking the derivative of each term, we get 8x^3 for the first term, -4 for the second term (as the derivative of -4x is -4), and 0 for the constant term. Therefore, the correct answer is 8x^3-4, which matches the given answer.

### Differentiate of x6 is 6x, true or false?

• A.

True

• B.

False

B. False
Explanation
The statement is false because the given differentiation is incorrect. The correct differentiation of x^6 is 6x^5.

• 3.

### Differentiate y= -6x4+3x2-12x

• A.

24x3-6x

• B.

-24x5+3x2-12x

• C.

-24x3+6x-12

• D.

64x3-6x

C. -24x3+6x-12
Explanation
The given expression y = -6x^4 + 3x^2 - 12x can be differentiated using the power rule of differentiation. The power rule states that for a term of the form ax^n, the derivative is given by nax^(n-1). Applying this rule to each term in the expression, we get the derivative as -24x^3 + 6x - 12.

### Differentiate y=7x2 - 3e3x+1

• A.

14 - 9e3x+1

• B.

14x2-3e4x+1

• C.

14x - 3e

• D.

14x - 9e3x+1

• E.

None of the above

D. 14x - 9e3x+1
Explanation
The given answer, 14x - 9e3x+1, is the correct differentiation of the function y=7x2 - 3e3x+1. The derivative of 7x2 is 14x, and the derivative of -3e3x+1 is -9e3x+1. Therefore, the correct answer is 14x - 9e3x+1.

Rate this question:

• 5.

### Differentiate of y= 3e-3x is -9e-3x true or false?

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
The given statement is true. The correct differentiation of y= 3e-3x is -9e-3x. This can be obtained by applying the power rule of differentiation, which states that the derivative of e^kx is k * e^kx. In this case, k is -3x, so the derivative becomes -3 * e^-3x. Simplifying further, we get -9e^-3x, which matches the given answer. Therefore, the statement is true.

• 6.

### Differentiate y= tan (3x2-1)

• A.

Sec(3x2-1)

• B.

6x sec2 (3x2-1)

• C.

3x sec2 (3x2-10

• D.

Sec2 (3x-1)

B. 6x sec2 (3x2-1)
Explanation
The correct answer is 6x sec^2(3x^2-1). To differentiate y = tan(3x^2-1), we can use the chain rule. The derivative of tan(u) is sec^2(u), and the derivative of (3x^2-1) with respect to x is 6x. Therefore, the derivative of y = tan(3x^2-1) is 6x sec^2(3x^2-1).

Rate this question:

• 7.

### Differentiate y = 3cos (5x+2) -5x-3

• A.

-15 sin(5x+2) - 15x-3

• B.

3 sin (5x+2)

• C.

-15 sin (5x+2) + 15/x4

• D.

-3 sin (5x+2) - 15x-3

• E.

None of the above

C. -15 sin (5x+2) + 15/x4
• 8.

### Differentiate y = x(3x2 - 5)

• A.

9x2 -5x

• B.

9x - 5

• C.

6x

• D.

9x2 - 5

• E.

None of the above

D. 9x2 - 5
Explanation
The correct answer is 9x^2 - 5. This is the correct answer because when we differentiate the given function, we use the power rule of differentiation. The power rule states that when differentiating a function of the form x^n, the derivative is nx^(n-1). Applying this rule to the given function, we differentiate the term 3x^2 to get 6x, and the constant term -5 differentiates to 0. Therefore, the derivative of y = x(3x^2 - 5) is 3x^2 + 6x - 5. Simplifying this expression gives us the correct answer of 9x^2 - 5.
