ln[sin(x-y)]

The answer is supposed to be 1/2; however, I cannot figure out how to get this answer. Any help is appreciated.

**James**, Tuesday, October 16, 2012 at 8:36pmI got the dz/dy derivative to be:

cos(x-y)/sin(x-y)

I got the d^2z/dydx derivative to be:

-(sin(x-y))^2 - (cos(x-y))^2/ (sin(x-y))^4

**Steve**, Wednesday, October 17, 2012 at 10:29amI think there's a minus sign missing there.

∂z/∂y = -cos(x-y)/sin(x-y) = -cot(x-y)

∂^2z/∂y∂x = csc^2(x-y)

∂^3z/∂y∂x^2 = 2csc(x-y) (-csc(x-y)cot(x-y))

= -2csc^2(x-y)cot(x-y)
