    yea... i think i did it wrong. i know when there's a y present you multiply by dy/dx

    Well, you see, we're taking the derivative with respect to x, so when we come upon a y, we just write "the derivative of y" which is dy//dx or y'

    But beacause of the chaine rule we have to multiply by the derivative of the inside.
