This is known as the "Chain Rule"

d/dx   [ f(x) }^n   =

n * [ f(x)] ^(n - 1) * [ f ' (x) ]

Where f ' x   is the derivative of f(x)

All that advanced math, buried and decomposing for 35 years. Along comes the internet and a math forum, and you have nothing better to do, so you decide to dig up the partially mummified, desiccated remains and display them on here, in all their ignominious glory.

Are you hoping it rejuvenates and comes back to life?

Hummm… Though I’m quite capable writing a troll post like this… for the record, I didn’t create this post.

There is another troll on here, one with gorilla DNA and dubious genetic enhancement, who usually wields blunt instruments of curse-words and vulgarities, but sometimes he sharpens his teeth and bites. He usually does this when trolling the more intelligent members and guests.

Which ever method he uses, his posts are usually amusing (though not always). This one is a long way from his masterpiece, but it still ranks above average.  Out of respect for the particular target(s) of this post, I’m keeping my laughter below the threshold of LMAO… It’s not easy though!
