Hello! It's me again, Cher I have another problem with regards to the derivative, what about the derivative of x to the power x? Cher 

Hi Cher, Finding the derivative of x^{x} depends on knowledge of the natural log function and implicit differentiation. Let y = x^{x}. If you take the natural log of both sides you get
Now differentiate both sides with respect to x, recalling that y is a function of x.
Thus
