    all this amounts to is chain rule practice .... if you know the chain rule, then its just a matter of keeping a clean record

    there are some cases where the mechanism of a derivative works, but the equation itself is bad .... i dont think this is the case tho

    take the derivative of f take the derivative of g take the derivative of h ... NOT take the derivative of f tan(g)(h)(k)...

    except use the "variable" as in each case; only the last one uses an x

    the j' is part of the chain rule process, which you are already doing ....
