if a is a constant, g(a) is a constant, so when you differentiate g(x+g(a)), then you just have the derivative of g: g'(x+g(a)), multiplied by the derivative of the inside, but: x'=1 g(a)=0, since g(a) is a constant, so all you have left is: g'(x+g(a))

yes derivaivte of x is 1 and that of a constant is 0 so it seems right...
