Hey can anyone help me with the following question....
use the composite rule to differentiate f(x) = e^cosx+sinx
thank you
composite rule is another name for chain rule isn't it?
differentiate the seperate terms
so diff's to using the chain rule (or composite rule (i.e. you diff the first term, then multiply by the diff of term inside brackets)) and diff's to using standard rules. then just add them together at the end
and to be more artistic you would swap them so you don't start with a negative sign.
The derivative of is -sin(x) times , not -sin of as you write.
