It is so similar that you should be able to do it the same way. Draw the triangle and you have sqrt(1-4x^2)

f(x) = (1-4x^2)^.5

f'(x) = .5 [(1-4x^2)^-.5] (-8x)

= -4x/sqrt(1-4x^2)

**Anonymous**, Tuesday, January 22, 2008 at 9:30pmOh.

But the text book I'm using gives me the answer:

Sqrt(1-4x^2)

No denominators or anything.
