    will i use quotient rule first then chain rule

    Chain rule then quotient rule

    move the 2 down first then quotient rule the inside.

    will i move 2 down multiply(inside) then multiply by quotient rule did that make sense?

    yes. So it ends up being 2(inside)(quotient-ruled-fraction)

    I am working on this and I know it is not correct, but too difficult to type the problem out. 2(x+1/1-x) (2/(1-x)^2) ????????

    Quotient rule: for simplification: T=top numerator, B=bottom denominator. (T/B)'= ((T')*B-(B')*T)/(B^2)

    2(x+1/1-x) is correct so far... just follow the quotient rule for the inside, multiply and you're done.

    i did that and got [this is after the 2(x+1/1-x) ]] (1-x)(1)-(x+1)(-1)/(1-x)^2

    then after that i get 2(x+1/1-x) (1-x+x+1/(1-x)^2 is that ok so far

    ok then i get 2(x+1/1-x) [2/(1-x)^2] what about that

    Yeah. that's good too. Then you can combine fractions again.

    ok then I get 2(2x+2/x^2-2x+1

    2(x+1/1-x) [2/(1-x)^2] top: 2* (x+1)* 2 bottom: (1-x) * (1-x)^2

    never mind one 1-x is ^2

    yeah. all the bottom components are the same, so just make it (1-x)^3
