    ln both sides \[\ln y = x \ln (\sin x)\] do implicit differentiation yada yada...got it?

    Phoenix, do you know why we use log differentiation here?

    This would be helpful for the future. \[d/dx (a^b) = 0\] because a and b are just constants. \[d/dx (x^n) = nx^{n-1}\] \[d/dx (f(x)^{g(x)}= \log differentiation\] because it's a function raised to a function.

    n is a constant in the second case.
