Derivative is equal to 0

#### Explanation:

Maybe you were trying to type, "What is the derivative of ln(5x)", but I'll answer your question anyways.

The derivative of any constant is equal to 0. The ln(5) is a constant, so therefore, the derivative is 0.

$0$

#### Explanation:

$\ln 5 \approx 1.61$

$\therefore \frac{d}{\mathrm{dx}} \left(\ln 5\right) \approx \frac{d}{\mathrm{dx}} \left(1.61\right)$

The derivative rules say that the derivative of any constant is $0$. So here, the answer is also $0$.
