  1. 1) dy/dx = dy/du*du/dx
    = (3 u^2 + 6)(8x^3 + 6x)
    To get it in terms of x only, substitute the u(x) function for u.

    2) Use the same "function of a function" approach as above. Let
    u = 4x^2 -x
    f(u) = u^(-1/2)
    df/dx = df/du*du/dx

    3) Let u = (2x-5)
    f(u) = 5/u^(2/3)
    Use the same procedure
