\(\ \huge \text{My steps:} \) \(\ \Huge f(x)=\frac{x}{(x^2+1)}.\) So to differentiate, I used the quotient rule: \(\ \Huge f'(x)=\frac{(1)(x^2+1)(x)(2x)}{(x^2+1)^2}, \) \(\ \Huge = \frac{x^2+12x^2}{(x^2+1)^2}, \) \(\ \Huge = \frac{x^2+1}{(x^2+1)^2}, \) \(\ \Huge = \frac{\cancel{x^2+1}}{\cancel{(x^2+1)}^2}, \) \(\ \Huge = \frac{1}{x^2+1} . \) \(\ \Huge \text{Is my work correct?} \)

\(\ \Huge = \frac{x^2+1}{(x^2+1)^2}\) cannot be simplified further. you cannot cancel like that.

@hartnn So is that all I can simplify?
