I guess you've to calculate the 51th derivative of the function , I should try to recognize a pattern in you derivatives.
Multiply both numerator and denominator by 1- x: That shows both that f is invertible and that .

Good point! And the fact that f is its own inverse makes that trivial!
i found the solution from my school's online portal. but i don't understand the steps. i mean from step 2 to 3. step1 step2 step3 as step4 step5
Do you understand reply #4? Because that means . So .
