# Need to show that a given function is always decreasing

I'd like to show that the following function is always decreasing: $$f(x) = \frac{x}{10^{\frac{a}{10}x}-1}, a > 0$$ that is $\frac{df(x)}{dx}<0,\forall x$.

I have found the first derivative and limited the reasoning to the numerator only since the denominator is squared it is always greater than zero (I didn't consider the study of possible zero value).

So I need to show that the numerator is always less than zero.

Here the formula I have in front of me, I've tried several ways to show that but, without success.

$$(1-\frac{a}{10}x\ln(10))10^{\frac{a}{10}x}-1 < 0$$

Could you please give me a hint?

Hint: By the Quotient rule i got this here $$f'(x)=-1/10\,{\frac {x{10}^{1/10\,ax}a\ln \left( 10 \right) -10\,{10}^{1/10 \,ax}+10}{ \left( {10}^{1/10\,ax}-1 \right) ^{2}}}$$ We must know something about the $a$
