In the problem f(x) = -1/x^2+1 finding the derivative using the quotient rule.

the solution would be -x^2+2x-1/(x^2+1)^2?

It seems right but im not sure.

The original problem is

Sorry about that, I see where I messed up on the third line I did not factor the (-x)(2x) on my paper. Thanks for the help e^(i*pi)
