Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[f(x)=\frac{\sin^2(x^2+5)}{\sqrt{x^2+1}}\]? like that? will be an algebra nightmare your math teacher must hate you

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0haha, that's right. I was supposed t do it in class, but i got to the middle and got fed up. Can you help me? please..

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[(\frac{f}{g})'=\frac{gf'f'g}{g^2}\] with \[f(x)=\sin^2(x^2+5),g(x)=\sqrt{x^2+1}\] we need both \(f'\) and \(g'\) and both require the chain rule

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so first we note that \(f\) is actually a composition of three functions, \(x^2+5\) , sine and the squaring function so good \[f'(x)=2\sin(x^2+5)\times \cos(x^2+5)\times 2x=4x\sin(x^2+5)\cos(x^2+5)\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1and also by the chain rule \[g'(x)=\frac{2x}{2\sqrt{x^2+1}}=\frac{x}{\sqrt{x^2+1}}\] so far so good?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1now we have to put this mess together for \[(\frac{f}{g})'=\frac{gf'f'g}{g^2}\] the denominator is easy enough, it is just \(x^2+1\) but the numerator is going to be a colossal mess i guess we can just write it down

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1numerator is \[\sqrt{x^2+1}\times 4x\sin(x^2+5)\cos(x^2+5)\sin^2(x^2+5)\times \frac{x}{\sqrt{x^2+1}}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1and so your whole mess is \[\frac{\sqrt{x^2+1}\times 4x\sin(x^2+5)\cos(x^2+5)\sin^2(x^2+5)\times \frac{x}{\sqrt{x^2+1}}}{x^2+1}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1now you can get rid of the compound fraction by multiplying top and bottom by \(\sqrt{x^2+1}\) to get \[\frac{(x^2+1)\times 4x\sin(x^2+5)\cos(x^2+5)\sin^2(x^2+5)\times x}{(x^2+1)\sqrt{x^2+1}}\] and maybe you can even clean this mess up with some more algebra by multiplying out in the numerator or something, but my algebra is not that good

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1there is also an annoying trig identity you can use since \[2\sin(x)\cos(x)=\sin(2x)\] so if you want to be really clever you can replace \[4x\sin(x^2+5)\cos(x^2+5)\] by \[2x\sin(2x^2+10)\] but i wouldn't

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1one is more than enough yw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1oh also you can write the denominator as \((x^2+1)^{\frac{3}{2}}\) but that strikes me as unnecessary also
