    Do you know how to do the chain rule with respect to trig functions?

    Example \[ \bigg(\cos^4(x)\bigg)^{\prime}=4\cos^3(x)\]

    oh and generally \[\cos^2(x) = (\cos(x))^2\]

    let me write it correctly \[f'(x)=-6\cos(x)\sin(x)-6\cos(x)]\] that's better

    \[\(cos^2(x))'=2\cos(x)(-\sin(x))=-2\cos(x)\sin(x)\]

    Corrected example from above: \[(\cos^4(x))'=4\cos^3(x)(-\sin(x))=-4\cos^3(x)\sin(x)\]
