How did the book get the + arctan(squre root of x)

I went through my work 4 times and I can't find out why. Unless the x in fron of arctan square root of x plays a role via chain rule.

$\displaystyle \textcolor{red}{y = x\arctan{\sqrt{x}}}$

product rule ...

$\displaystyle \textcolor{red}{y' = x \cdot \frac{1}{2\sqrt{x}(1 + x)} + \arctan{\sqrt{x}} \cdot 1}

$
