An interesting pattern with derivatives and the power rule.

I found an interesting pattern while finding higher order derivatives using the power rule. I was curious what the 3rd derivative of x5 was. So I used the power rule to find the first derivative and I got f1(x)= 5×4 I applied the rule again to get the second derivative and got f2(x)= 20×3 I […]
