# Thread: product rule derivative check!

1. ## product rule derivative check!

$

y = x^2cscx\sqrt{x^2+1}

$

its derivative is :

$

y' = 2xcscx\sqrt{x^2+1} - x^2cotxcscx\sqrt{x^2+1} + x^2cscx\frac{1}{2\sqrt{x^2+1}}

$

correct?

2. Not quite

$y' = 2xcscx\sqrt{x^2+1} - \bigg(x^2cotxcscx\sqrt{x^2+1}\bigg)\bigg(\frac{2x} {2\sqrt{x^2+1}}\bigg)$

Oops nevermind didn't see that there was an x behinf the csc

hrmm what happened to the $+ x^2cscx$ ? and the 2x where it come from? thank u

so is mine okay ?

$
$y' = 2xcscx\sqrt{x^2+1} - (x^2cotxcscx\sqrt{x^2+1}) + x^2cscx\frac{2x}{2\sqrt{x^2+1}}$

6. Quick question is it

$x^2csc(x\sqrt{x^2 -1})$

or

$x^2(cscx)(\sqrt{x^2-1})$

its the 2nd one
