Let y = u^3+6u, where u = 2x^4+3x^22
Find dy/dx.
Also..
2) Let f(x) = 1/sqrt(4x^2x). Determine f'(x).
3) Let y = 5/cubrt((2x5)^2). Determine dy/dx.

1) dy/dx = dy/du*du/dx
= (3 u^2 + 6)(8x^3 + 6x)
To get it in terms of x only, substitute the u(x) function for u.
2) Use the same "function of a function" approach as above. Let
u = 4x^2 x
f(u) = u^(1/2)
df/dx = df/du*du/dx
3) Let u = (2x5)
f(u) = 5/u^(2/3)
Use the same procedure
