Find the derivative of
4 sec^7 (πt − 6)?

well, we know we keep the 4 :)
Let z = 4(sec u)^7 and u = pi t  6
then
dz/du = 4 * 7 (sec u)^6 d sec u/du
= 28 (sec u)^6 (sec u )(tan u)
= 28 sec^7 u tan u
dz/dt = dz/du * du/dt = dz/du * pi
so
dz/dt = 28 pi sec^7(pi t6)tan(pi t6)

How do I find the critical values? y= 4/x + tan(πx/8) What I did is I simplified it to y= 4x^1 + tan(πx/8) then I took the derivative y'= 4x^2 + (π/8)(sec(πx/8))^2 Then I simplied it y'= 4/x^2 + (π/8)(sec(πx/8))^2
