\[f(x) = \frac{g(x)}{h(x)} => \frac{h'(x) * g(x)  g'(x)*h(x)}{[h(x)]^2} \]

\[f(x) = \frac{Top Func.}{Bottom Func} => \frac{Deriv. of Bottom Func * Top func.  Deriv. of Top func. * Bottom Func}{[Bottom Func]^2} \]

so here: g(x) = 4x2, h(x) = x^2 + 1

OH, cool, I'll give it a shot: g(x) = (4x2), h(x) = x^2+1. g'(x) = 4, h'(x) = 2x

so: \[\frac{2x * (4x2)  4*(x^2+1)}{[(x^2+1)]^2} \]
