    Hmm so what would the derivative of \(\large \sin\theta\) be? This is another one of those problems where we'll have to work with the chain rule. :)

    Yes good! Since the inside of the sine is more than just \(\large \theta\), we have to apply the chain rule, multiplying by the derivative of the inside. \[\huge r'=\cos(4-2\theta)\color{royalblue}{\left(4-2\theta\right)'}\]

    cos(4-2theta) (-2) ?

    Understand the process? We took the derivative of sine, which gave us cosine (with the same contents inside of it). And then we make a copy of the inside, and multiply by it's derivative.
