Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I will just do the first term 1) When you are taking chain rule always takes derivative of outside function first

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.02) derivative of outside function is 3(t^41)^2 derivative of inside function is 4t^3 multiply inside and outside derivative

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0This is a chain rule problem and a product rule. So be careful.. if you don't get it reply.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes I know but he just wanted help with chain rule so I used the first term as example

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i'm actually a she. Since it is a product rule how would i find in the outside and inside function?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You will have to use both product rule and chain rule to solve whole problem. The product rule is = F(x)'g(x)+g(x)'(F(x)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okay, so i got the derivative of the first one, which was the same as you got. and i ended up with a long equation.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes it's pretty messy if you don't simplify it. i can tell you the answer if you think you got it or you're stumped

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0applying product rule (t^41)^3)* 4(t^3+1)^3 * 3t^2 + (t^3+1)^4 *3(t^41)^2 *4t^3 From here it is just algebra

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0im so confused! okay so after i take the derivative of the outside functions, what do i do? i ended up with 3(t^41)^2 (t^3+1)^4 + (t^41)^2 [4(t^3+1)^3]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You left out derivative of inside function
