why is there two 2x on top

And product rule... http://tutorial.math.lamar.edu/Classes/CalcI/ProductQuotientRule.aspx

one 2x is the original one. another is by diff the equation inside the sqrt

So say if you have f*g. If you use the product rule, then you'll do: f'*g + f*g'.

its cool how you get rid of the sqrt on top

Okay so going from the 3rd to the 4th line: There's 2sqrt(x^2+1) He want's to get it so it has the same denominator as the other term. The den of the other term is sqrt(x^2+1). So with the left term, you have to multiply the numerator and denominator by sqrt(x^2+1). Then you end up with (2sqrt(x^2+1)*sqrt(x^2+1))/sqrt(x^2+1) = (2(x^2+1))/sqrt(x^2+1)

We all tend to get lost in the little steps, believe me I've been there. Coco did a great job writing that out.

paper is way faster and thank u guys for being so patient with me

So goku, remember with this problem, you have to use the product rule and then the chain rule since you have stuff inside of that square root.
