    \[f(x) = \sin ^{3}(x)\] Did I write this down correctly? If so, try substitution. For example, let u = sin(x) and then take the derivative of u^3

    I got f'(X) is 9x^2cosx^2

    3u^2 du/dx, yes. Now what is du/dx if u = sin x?

    In other words, what is u' if u = sin x

    Great, so du/dx = cos x So we have 3u^2 * cos x Substitute u = sin(x) back in and what do we end up with ?
