dy/dx = 3(cos^2 x)(-sinx)
= -3sinx cos^2 x
b) product rule
dy/dx = (sin^2 x)(-3sin (3x) ) + (cos (3x))(2sinx(cosx))
c) you try it, let me know what you got
Hey Reiny, I think b) is wrong.
b)y' = 2SinxCos3x + CosxCos3x * (-Sinx)
y' = 2SinxCos3x - SinxCosxCos3x
... and I am not sure how to do c)
don't know how you got your answer, I will stick to mine
derivative of sin^2 x or (sinx)^2 is
the derivative of cos 3x = (-sin 3x)(3) = -3sin 3x
so dy/dx = (sin^2 x)(-3sin (3x)) + cos(3x) (2sinxcosx)
like I had
all you have to do is trying to simplify it a bit.
y = sin (x^3)
dy/dx = cos (x^3) (3x^2)
= 3x^2 cos(x^3)
