Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1take the derivative of f take the derivative of g take the derivative of h ... NOT take the derivative of f tan(g)(h)(k)...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1let: f = tan(g) f' = sec^2(g) g= cos(h) g' = sin(h) h = e^j h' = j e^j j = sqrt(k) j' = 1/(2sqrt(k)) k = x^2+1 k' = 2x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1hmmm, j' e^j yes, but your already solving for j' so thats really just e^j
