It seems like it should be simple, but I just cannot get it worked out properly!

Given: y=f(x) with f(1)=4 and f'(1)=3, find:

(a.) g'(1) if g(x)=sq. rt. of f(x)

and then

(b.) h'(1) if h(x)=f(sq.rt. of x)

Please, if someone could please offer me assistance, even some hints would be appreciated.

These are driving me insane with frustration and I have a 105% average in my class!!! What am I overlooking????

Thank you,

Lynn
