Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1ok, u is not a function of x, then i think you are gonna want to check the exponent of sec u

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1in case you get this, everything looks ok except the exponent on sec u. the n2 out front is good, the sec^(n3) times the sec u tan u (chain rule) is what is affecting the exponent

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1do you see what the exponent is now for sec u?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the n2 in front is correct. you also have product of secu^(n3) and then there is the chain rule that multiplies by secutanu. so, it is not n3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1it would still be sec^(n2)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1(n2)(secu)^(n3) times secutanu which equals (n2)(secu)^(n2) times tanu
