Find dy/dx.
$\displaystyle y= sin^5 x - cos^3 x$
The exponent 5 is negative. I don't know the LaTex.
I understand the chain rule. I do not understand how to do this.
Which function is outer f(x) and which is inner g(x)?
Thanks!
the derivative of a constant is zero. where do you see a constant here? 5 is a power, for all intents and purposes, it is a part of the sine function we are dealing with. if it was just a 5 by itself, then yes, it goes to zero, that is not the case here. use the chain rule (with the power rule)
