# Derivative of a Power of a Function

To find a derivative of a function, consider the following examples to expand on the concept of a derivative of a given function.

**1. **Consider the following function:

Differentiating with respect to variable , we get

First we take the derivative of a power of a function, and then differentiate the inner function

**2. **Consider the following function:

Differentiating with respect to variable , we get

First we take the derivative of a power of a function, and then differentiate the inner function
