The problem is: tansqrt(5t). I get that I need to use the chain rule but I think I'm messing it up.
So I did this: tansqrt(5t) = sec^2sqrt(5t) * 1/2(tt)^-1/2 = sec^2sqrt(5t)/2sqrt(5t).
However, this is the wrong answer. What am I missing?

I always use Leibnitz notation when using the Chain Rule. You can have as many links in your chain as you need. Here we can see the 5t function inside a square root function inside a tangent function. Since it's three functions deep, we need three links in the chain.
