Find the derivative of the function.

sin(sin[sinx])

I need to use the chain rule to solve. So I take the derivative sin(sin[sinx) first. Then multiply that by the inside which is the derivative of sin[sinx]. And multiply that by derivative of [sinx].

So this is what I got:

cos(sin[sinx])*cos[sinx]*cosx

Is this right?

    d/dx( ln |sin(pi/x)| ) = ? Thanks. If those are absolute value signs, the derivative will not exist when sin (pi/x) = 0, because of the sign change that occurs there. Assume sin (pi/x) > 0 Let u(x) = pi/x and v(x) = sin x, and use

    I have y = sin^2(3^(x)) which I rewrite as y = (sin(3^(x)))^2 I got the derivative using the chain rule as the following y' = 3(sin(3^x))^2 (cos(3x)) (3^(x)(ln(3)) Can anyone confirm whether this is right/wrong?
