Let f(x)= (1+cos^3(7x))^3. what is df/dx when x=pi/4
so far I have
df/dx= 3(1+cos(7x)^3)^3 (3cos(7x)^2 (-sin(7x) (7)
and when i plug in pi/4 i get 20.404 (when accurate to one-thousandths)
is this right?

Not sure df/dx is right. Think the first power should be a square not a cube (I may be wrong)
And plugging a number in via a calculator to get a numerical answer is not mathematics. What you need to do is remember that and same for sine and use that.
