If f(x)=4sinx/1+cosx
then f'(x)=_____?
I think that the derivative of 4sinx would be 4cos and cosx would be sinx but I don't know where to go from there.

put u=4sin(x), and v=(1+cos(x)),
then use the quotient rule:
d(u/v)= (v du/dx  u dv/dx) / v^{2}

Sorry, I didn't see the comment the first time,
d(cos(x))/dx = sin(x)
