Find the derivative of y with respect to x:
y=(1+cos²x)^6
y'=6(1+cos²x)^5
How do you derive inside the brackets? The answer says sin2x, but wouldn't it be 2sinx, using the chain rule.

Solve identity, (1sin2x)/cos2x = cos2x/(1+sin2x) I tried starting from the right side, RS: =(cos²xsin²x)/(1+2sinxcosx) =(cos²x(1cos²x))/(1+2sinxcosx) and the right side just goes in circle. May I get a hint to start off?
