## Chapter 5 Ex.5.4 Question 2

Differentiating the following $${e^{{{\sin }^{ - 1}}x}}$$

### Solution

$$\frac{d}{{dx}}\left( {{e^x} + {e^{{x^2}}} + \ldots + {e^{{x^5}}}} \right)$$

Differentiating wrt x, we get

\begin{align}\frac{d}{{dx}}\left( {{e^x} + {e^{{x^2}}} + \ldots + {e^{{x^5}}}} \right) &= \frac{d}{{dx}}\left( {{e^x}} \right) + \frac{d}{{dx}}\left( {{e^{{x^2}}}} \right) + \frac{d}{{dx}}\left( {{e^{{x^3}}}} \right) + \frac{d}{{dx}}\left( {{e^{{x^4}}}} \right) + \frac{d}{{dx}}\left( {{e^{{x^5}}}} \right)\\ &= {e^x} + \left[ {{e^{{x^2}}} \times \frac{d}{{dx}}\left( {{x^2}} \right)} \right] + \left[ {{e^{{x^3}}} \times \frac{d}{{dx}}\left( {{x^3}} \right)} \right] \\& \qquad + \left[ {{e^{{x^4}}} \times \frac{d}{{dx}}\left( {{x^4}} \right)} \right] + \left[ {{e^{{x^5}}} \times \frac{d}{{dx}}\left( {{x^5}} \right)} \right]\\ &= {e^x} + \left( {{e^{{x^2}}} \times 2x} \right) + \left( {{e^{{x^3}}} \times 3{x^2}} \right) + \left( {{e^{{x^4}}} \times 4{x^3}} \right) + \left( {{e^{{x^5}}} \times 5{x^4}} \right)\\& = {e^x} + 2x{e^{{x^2}}} + 3{x^2}{e^{{x^3}}} + 4{x^3}{e^{{x^4}}} + 5{x^4}{e^{{x^5}}}\end{align}

## Chapter 5 Ex.5.4 Question 7

Differentiating the following wrt $$x:\sqrt {{e^{\sqrt x }}} ,x > 0$$

### Solution

Let $$y = \sqrt {{e^{\sqrt x }}}$$

Then, $${y^2} = {e^{\sqrt x }}$$

Differentiating wrt x, we get

$${y^2} = {e^{\sqrt x }}$$

\begin{align}&\frac{d}{{dx}}\left( {{y^2}} \right) = \frac{d}{{dx}}\left( {{e^{\sqrt x }}} \right)\\& \Rightarrow \;2y\frac{{dy}}{{dx}} = {e^{\sqrt x }}\frac{d}{{dx}}\left( {\sqrt x } \right)\\& \Rightarrow \;2y\frac{{dy}}{{dx}} = {e^{\sqrt x }}\frac{1}{2}.\frac{1}{{\sqrt x }}\\ &\Rightarrow \;\frac{{dy}}{{dx}} = \frac{{{e^{\sqrt x }}}}{{4y\sqrt x }}\\& \Rightarrow \;\frac{{dy}}{{dx}} = \frac{{{e^{\sqrt x }}}}{{4\sqrt {{e^{\sqrt x }}} \sqrt x }}\\& \Rightarrow \;\frac{{dy}}{{dx}} = \frac{{{e^{\sqrt x }}}}{{4\sqrt {x{e^{\sqrt x }}} }},x > 0\end{align}

## Chapter 5 Ex.5.4 Question 8

Differentiating the following wrt $$x:\log \left( {\log x} \right),x > 1$$

### Solution

Let $$y = \log \left( {\log x} \right)$$

By using the chain rule, we get

\begin{align}\frac{{dy}}{{dx}}& = \frac{d}{{dx}}\left[ {\log \left( {\log x} \right)} \right]\\ &= \frac{1}{{\log x}}.\frac{d}{{dx}}\left( {\log x} \right)\\ &= \frac{1}{{\log x}}.\frac{1}{x}\\ &= \frac{1}{{x\log x}},x > 1\end{align}

## Chapter 5 Ex.5.4 Question 9

Differentiating the following wrt $$x:\frac{{\cos x}}{{\log x}},x > 0$$

### Solution

Let $$y = \frac{{\cos x}}{{\log x}}$$

## Chapter 5 Ex.5.4 Question 10

Differentiate the following wrt $$x:\cos \left( {\log x + {e^x}} \right),x > 0$$

### Solution

Let $$y = \cos \left( {\log x + {e^x}} \right)$$
