    \[{d\over dx} \;\;\; \sqrt x+{1\over4}\sin(2x)^2 = {1\over{2\sqrt x}}+ {2\over2}\sin(2x)\cos(2x)\]

    Remember you're also multiplying the \[{1\over \sqrt{x}}\]by \(1\over2\)

    is there an identity that makes it 2xcos(2x)^2

    Not that I know of. Let me see if I can get wolfram to change it.

    Well, when I use wolfram to integrate \({1\over \sqrt{x}}+2x \cos^2 (2x)\) I don't get the original function back, so I'm thinking the book is wrong.
