# Math Help - Checking on an answer – Finding the derivative of a square root.

1. ## Checking on an answer – Finding the derivative of a square root.

So, I am working on finding the derivative of the following function:

Using the chain rule I did the following:

My two questions are:
1. Is this right?

2. If correct, should I leave it in this form?
Thank you so much for your time.

2. The answer I got was:

Let $f(t)=\sqrt{t+\sqrt t}$, and let F(t) be an antiderivative of f(t). Then;

$\int _0^{\tan x}\sqrt{t+\sqrt t} dt=F(t)]_0^{\tan x}=F(\tan x)-F(0).$

So, by the chain rule:

$\frac{d}{dx}\int _0^{\tan x}\sqrt{t+\sqrt t} dt=F'(\tan x)\cdot \sec ^2 x-F'(0)=\sqrt{\tan x+\sqrt{\tan x}}\cdot \sec ^2x$.

3. I see, you did the substitutions that I didn't do. I'll rework the problem and check back!

Thanks again.
