Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh yaaaa, chain rule... completely forgot about it o: i was only thinking about using first quotient rule for each fraction side, then finding the y' using product rule... after that the y'' i was stuck... wasn't remembering chain rule.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0from the looks of equation you have, you probably could separate each brackets into two components with the common denominator  that could possibly simplify a little  then try using chain rule from there
