# Find the derivative of the following functions (it is to be understood that a, b, c, d, p, q, r and s are fixed non-zero constants and m and n are integers): ax + b ^ n

12.  Find the derivative of the following functions (it is to be understood that a, b, c, d, p, q, r and s are fixed non-zero constants and m and n are integers):

$( ax + b ) ^ n$

Given

$f(x)=( ax + b ) ^ n$

Now, As we know the chain rule of derivative,

$[f(g(x))]'=f'(g(x))\times g'(x)$

And, the property,

$f'(x^n)=nx^{n-1}$

Also the property

$\frac{d(y_1+y_2)}{dx}=\frac{dy_1}{dx}+\frac{dy_2}{dx}$

applying those properties we get,

$f'(x)=n(ax+b)^{n-1}\times a$

$f'(x)=an(ax+b)^{n-1}$
