The 2nd one makes me want to cut myself
I see nothing particularly "fun" or very difficult about this. The derivative of with respect to u is and using the chain rule the derivative of is . The derivative of ln(u) with respect to u is 1/u so the derivative of is . Adding those gives what you say the answer is "supposed" to be.
