Derivative of y=sec(tanx)? I don't get how it is secxsecx*secxtanx*tanxtanx. Where does an extra tanx come from? Derivative of sec(tanx) is just secxtanx*tanx (and then multiply the inside as well so)* sec^2(X) as derivative of tanx. I have 2 tanx, where did the third one ...

So the answer is supposed to be sin(2x)/(1+cosx)^3 but I was wondering for the numerator why the distributive law doesn't apply when we would multiply the derivative of the outside with the inside?

**Math**

Wait sorry, you just expanded. But shouldn't it be sin times sin? Not sin times cos? Since derivative of the 1+cos is -sin and the numerator is a sin?

**Math**

I think you did the quotient rule wrong. Should be minus not plus

So I found the derivative of an expression and I cannot figure out how to simplify the final answer into the desired form. I got -csc^2(X)/(1+cotx)^2. Now how do I simplify this into -1/(sinx+cosx)^2. Help, it's killing me ahha. Thanks!

Why do we have to sub it back into the original function to get 0/0? If we got 0/x then it means it's a vertical asymptote right? and what about the oblique asymptote? We don't worry about it then?

What is the: - vertical asymptote -horizontal asymptote -non permissible value of y=(x^2+x-12)/(x+4) ? So this simplifies to a linear function y=x-3. BUT the oblique asymptote is also y=x-3. So does this graph not exist? I am really confused.
