PROBLEM 1

f(x)=1/(x-2x^2)^(9/8)

Find the derivative of f(x).

For starters i moved the binomial to the numerator and switched the power to negative giving me f(x)=(x-2x^2)^(-9/8) . After that I simply applied the chain rule giving me (-9/8)(x-2x^2)^-17/8(-4x) . It says this answer is incorrect...
