    1/(x(lnx+1)^2) by using the quotient rule :-)

    It's (1+ln2)/(x(ln2x + 1)^2)

    so then [(1+ln(x)) / x] / [(1+ln(2x))^2] is what

    i mean (1+ln(2)) / x

    ([(1+ln(2x)) / x]-[(lnx)/x] )/ [(1+ln(2x))^2]

    super secret tip: the quotient rule is best avoided. better to rewrite the problem and use the product rule

    but that involves confusion using the power of -1 ,i feel...

    yes, so if you know the chain rule this shouldn't be too hard\[\ln x(1+\ln(2x))^{-1}\]

    so @calyne try this with product rule\[\ln x(1+\ln(2x))^{-1}\]let\[u=\ln x\]\[v=(1+\ln(2x))^{-1}\]
