    Math Question - Need a Derivative?

    Hi there,

    I'm a bit rusty, so I'm struggling with this:

    How do I differentiate: x * (1 + cx)^n : wrt x?

    Where c is constant. Can it be done analytically?

    Any help appreciated. Thanks.

    use the power rule - then multiplication rule
    c++->visualc++->directx->opengl->c++;
    (it should be realized my posts are all in a light hearted manner. And should not be taken offense to.)
