find the derivatives, dy/dx, for the following functions :

y=(1+sin^2{2 exp (3x)})^5y

please help me to solve this assignment.

    Are you sure the right hand of the equation ends with y? If so, you do not have an explicit y(x) function.

    It can be differentiated implicitly, but is rather a mess.

    yes i'm sure..the assignment like that.

    wow. that's a nasty one.

    Recall that, extending the power and exponent rules, if u and v are functions of x, then if

    y = u^v
    dy/dx = v*u^(v-1) du/dx + ln(u) * u^v * dv/dx

    So, letting
    u = 1+sin^2(2e^3x)

    y = u^5y
    y' = 5y * u^(5y-1) u' + ln(u) * u^5y * 5y'

    Now, u' = 2sin(2e^3x)cos(2e^3x)*(6e^3x)

    and I'm sure you can take it from there. Good luck!

    thank's steve :)
