Could someone please show me how I'd find the derivative of That would be great. Thanks for reading! This is a chain rule problem. Let's approach it this way. Let . It follows that . Now by chain rule, . Since we let , it follows by quotient rule that . Therefore, This can be simplified as Does this make sense?

First note that this is function composition before we use the chain rule lets calculate the needed derviatves Now the chain rule tells us that
