Homework Help: derivative

Posted by Steff on Saturday, June 11, 2011 at 5:02pm.

41) Find the derivative.

h(x)= (3x^2 + 1)^3 / (x^2 - 1)^4

This is where I am at the moment....

h'(x)= (x^2-1)^4 (3)(3x^2+1)^2(6x) - (3x^2+1)^3(4)(x^2-1)^3(2x)

This is what I am trying to get....(not final answer)

=2x(x^2-1)^3(3x^2+1)^2[(9)(x^2-1) - (4)(3x^2+1)}



Am really struggling with this. I have the answer in the back of the book but am not getting it right. have the solutions manual also. The chapter is on general power rule and chain rule.
