Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well your inner function is \(2x^23\) and your outer function is \(\cos(x)\). There shouldn't be anything hard about this.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The  is just \(1\cdot \cos(x)\). It's a constant. You can pull it out and put it back in after.
