Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1if your one a plane thats flying thru the air; and you walk from the back to the front; how fast are you going? well, that all depends on how you compute your speed; and the rate of change depends on not only your speed but the planes speed so we account for both. the chain rule is doing the same thing forrates of change of functions

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1sqrt(sin^2(x)3) 1/2sqrt(sin^2(x)3) depends on: ()^2  3 2(sin(x)) depends on: sin(x) cos(x) depends on x \[D_x[\sqrt{sin^2(x)3}\ ]=\frac{1}{2\sqrt{sin^2(x)3}}*2(sin(x))*cos(x)\]
