    it should be done only by first principle method and not using the formula

    \[\frac{dy}{dx}=\lim_{h \rightarrow 0}\frac{f(x+h)-f(x)}{h}=\lim_{h \rightarrow 0}\frac{1}{h}(\frac{\cos^{-1}(x+h)}{x+h}-\frac{\cos^{-1}(x)}{x})\] Grind out the work...

    I'd start by making a common denominator for the right hand side...

    Reduce this:\[\frac{\cos^{-1}(x+h)}{x+h}-\frac{\cos^{-1}(x)}{x}\].

    yes this is correct answer but it should be done with first principle method
