**Ex 6:** **Differentiate the following functions with respect to x:**

**Ex 6.(i):** 10^{x }⋅ x^{10}

Solution: The derivative of 10^{x }⋅ x^{10 }is equal to

d/dx(10^{x }⋅ x^{10}) = 10^{x }d/dx(x^{10}) + x^{10 }d/dx(10^{x}) , by the product rule of derivatives.

= 10^{x }⋅ 10x^{10-1} + x^{10}⋅10^{x} log_{e}10

= 10^{x+1 }⋅x^{9} + x^{10}⋅10^{x} log_{e}10

**Ex 6.(ii):** x^{3}log x

Solution:

d/dx(x^{3 }log x) = x^{3 }d/dx(log x) + log x^{ }d/dx(x^{3})

= x^{3 }⋅ 1/x + log x ⋅ 3x^{2}

= x^{2} + 3x^{2} log x

= x^{2 }(1 + 3log x)

**Ex 6.(iii):** e^{x }tan x

Solution: The derivative of e^{x }tan x^{ }is equal to

d/dx(e^{x }tan x) = e^{x }d/dx(tan x) + tan x^{ }d/dx(e^{x}) , by the product rule of derivatives.

= e^{x }⋅ sec^{2}x + tan x ⋅ e^{x}

= e^{x }(tan x + sec^{2}x)

**Ex 6.(iv):** √x log √x

Solution:

d/dx(√x log √x) = √x ⋅^{ }d/dx(log √x) + log √x ⋅^{ }d/dx(√x)

$=\sqrt{x} \frac{1}{\sqrt{x}} \frac{d}{dx}(\sqrt{x})$ $+\log \sqrt{x} \frac{d}{dx}(\sqrt{x})$

$=\frac{d}{dx}(x^{1/2}) (1+\log \sqrt{x})$

$=\frac{1}{2} x^{1/2-1} (1+\log \sqrt{x})$

$=\frac{1}{2\sqrt{x}} (1+\log \sqrt{x})$

**Ex 6.(v):** (x^{2}+1)e^{x}

Solution:

d/dx{(x^{2}+1)e^{x}} = (x^{2}+1)^{ }d/dx(e^{x}) + e^{x}^{ }d/dx(x^{2}+1)

= (x^{2}+1) e^{x} + e^{x} (2x+0)

= e^{x }(x^{2}+1+2x)

= e^{x }(x+1)^{2}

**Ex 6.(vi):** e^{x }sec x

Solution:

The derivative of e^{x }sec x^{ }is equal to

d/dx(e^{x }sec x) = e^{x }d/dx(sec x) + sec x^{ }d/dx(e^{x}) , by the product rule of derivatives.

= e^{x }⋅ sec x tan x + sec x ⋅ e^{x}

= e^{x }sec x (tan x + 1)

Solution:

**Ex 6.(viii):** cosec x ⋅ cot x

Solution:

The derivative of cosec x ⋅ cot x^{ }is equal to

d/dx(cosec x ⋅ cot x) = cosec x^{ }d/dx(cot x) + cot x^{ }d/dx(cosec x) , by the product rule of derivatives.

= cosec x ⋅ (-cosec^{2} x) + cot x ⋅ (-cosec x cot x)

= -cosec x (cosec^{2}x+cot^{2}x)

**Ex 6.(ix):** (sin x +sec x)(cos x +cosec x)

Solution:

The derivative of (sin x +sec x)(cos x +cosec x)^{ }is equal to

d/dx[(sin x +sec x)(cos x +cosec x)]

= (sin x +sec x) d/dx(cos x +cosec x) + (cos x +cosec x) d/dx(sin x +sec x)

= (sin x +sec x) (-sin x -cosec x cot x) + (cos x +cosec x) (cos x +sec x tan x)

**Ex 6.(x):** sec^{3} x

Solution: The derivative of sec^{3}x^{ }is equal to

d/dx(sec^{3} x) = 3 sec^{2} x ⋅ d/dx(sec x)

**Ex 6.(xiii):** x cos x + 2^{x} sec x

Solution:

The derivative of x cos x + 2^{x} sec x^{ }is equal to

d/dx(x cos x + 2^{x} sec x) = d/dx(x cos x) + d/dx(2^{x} sec x)

= x d/dx(cos x) + cos x d/dx(x) + 2^{x} d/dx(sec x) + sec x d/dx(2^{x})

= x sin x + cos x ⋅ 1 + 2^{x} sec x tan x + sec x ⋅ 2^{x}log_{e}2

= x sin x + cos x + 2^{x} sec x (tan x + log_{e}2)
