Fill in the blank.

If x = t log t and y = tt, then "dy"/"dx" = ____

#### Solution

If x = t log t and y = tt, then "dy"/"dx" = y.

Explanation:

x = t . log t        ....(i)

y = tt

Taking logarithm of both sides, we get

log y = t . log t

∴ log y = x         ....[From (i)]

∴ y = "e"^"x"        ...(ii)

Differentiating both sides w.r.t. x, we get

"dy"/"dx" = "e"^"x"

∴ "dy"/"dx" = "y"             ....[From (ii)]
