    Re: Find y' For Given Function

    You will find this problem MUCH easier if you simplify the logarithm first: \displaystyle \begin{align*} \ln{ \left( \frac{x + 1}{x - 1} \right) } = \ln{ \left( x + 1 \right) } - \ln{ \left( x - 1 \right) }  \end{align*}.

    Thanks. I thought about using the quotient rule for logs but it was just a thought. I will tackle this question again today.
