Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0In sin[ln(cosx^3)] is (cosx^3) meant to be (cos(x)) ^3 OR is it meant to be ( cos(x^3) ) ? They are not the same.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0here: we start by taking the derivative of the outside function sin(u) where u = ln(cosx^3). This is equal to cos(u)*du/dx. Then, du/dx requires the use of the chain rule again, therefore du/dx = d/dx ln(v) where v = cos(x^3). This is equal to (1/v)*dv/dx. We have that dv/dx requires use of the chain rule as well, so dv/dx = d/dx cos(k) where k = x^3. This is equal to sin(k)*3x^2. So the final answer all together is: cos(ln(cosx^3))*(1/cosx^3)*(sin(x^3))*3x^2
