Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i was thinking looking at it like a horizontal asymptote? but isn't that only when there's a limit in front of it? where you would divide everything by the highest exponent which is e^2x so you would be left with 1/1 which is cos(1) is that right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0or do i differentiate with the chain rule and division rule?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\large y=\cos \left(\frac{1e^{2x}}{1+e^{2x}}\right)\]We'll start by taking the derivative of the `outermost function`. In this case that would be the cosine part.\[\large y'=\sin \left(\frac{1e^{2x}}{1+e^{2x}}\right)\color{royalblue}{\left(\frac{1e^{2x}}{1+e^{2x}}\right)'}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Differentiation rules tell us that we have to work our way in. So for the first part let a = \[(1e^(2x))/(1+ e^(2x))\] Take the derivative of the cos(a) Which gives us sin(a) Plug the actual value of a back in to get \[sin((1e^(2x))/(1+ e^(2x))\] Now let's do the inside. The derivative of e^2x is 2e^2x. And the derivative of f(x)/g(x) is: (f'(x)g(x)  g'(x)f(x))/g(x)^2 So this gives us (2e^(2x)*(1+e^(2x)) 2e^(2x)*(1e^(2x)))/(1+e^(2x))^2 Multiply that by sin((1e^2x)/(1+e^2x))

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So like Canadian was saying, we work our way from the outside in c: Taking the derivative of the `outermost function` gave us the sine. Then, according to the `chain rule` we have to make a copy of the inside, and multiply by it's derivative. That's what the blue part represents. The little prime on the outside is to let us know that we still need to differentiate it. \[\large y'=\sin \left(\frac{1e^{2x}}{1+e^{2x}}\right)\color{royalblue}{\left(\frac{1e^{2x}}{1+e^{2x}}\right)'}\]
