Jeez i feel dumb but the algerbra on top is correct and all i would do is throw the (1 + ln x)^2 on the bottom.

you would think someone taking calc 2 would know the quotient rule (Speechless) - Feb 21st 2010, 12:52 PMRandom Variable
It's technically never necessary to use the quotient rule because it's just a form of the product rule.
