Delicate Derivative Derivation II (Posted on 2010-08-03) Difficulty: 3 of 5
F(x) is a function which is defined as:
F(x) = √(1 + 4x2 - 4x3 - 4x5 + 4x6 + x8)

Determine F(10)(0), that is, the tenth derivative of F(x) with respect to x at x=0.

Some Thoughts re: not much | Comment 2 of 4 |
(In reply to not much by Ady TZIDON)


I believe that, although your p'(0)=0, some higher derivatives (2nd, 3rd, 6th 8th) are not zero when x=0, and these will still be present in the 10th derivative.

I can't  think of a neat way round this one, but if nothing comes to mind soon I'll try a 'less than neat' way that I think should work.
