Differentiate. y= (cos x)^x u= cos x du= sin x dx ln y = ln(cos x)^x ln y = x ln(cos x) (dy/dx)/(y)= ln(cos x) (dy/dx)= y ln(cos x) = (cos x)^x * (ln cos x) (dx/du)= x(cos x)^(x1) * (sin x) =  x sin(x)cos^(x1)(x) (dy/dx)(dx/du)= …

Differentiate ln (1+ cos x)... My ans is (sin x)/ (1+cos x), but at wolfram is tan (x/2). I think they simplify it but how did they do it?
