Those are correct. However, I notice that in using chain rule for the second problem, you have

while using direct substitution, you get

Those are, of course, the same because and so that

but the second, with only the variable t is the better expression. - Oct 7th 2010, 05:39 AMcutiemike1
oh yeah!! since it is

*with respect to t*..thanks a lot for that one...

however, i am just wondering in my number 1 answer...try to take a look in Chain Rule the, are the derivatives under it are correct??**y=re^-s** - Oct 7th 2010, 05:40 AMcutiemike1
