Differentiate the following function.
f (x) = 7 sin(x) + 1/6 cot(x)

asked by van
  1. Well, the derivative of sin is cos, and the derivative of cotan is cosec^2, both of which should be in your standard list of derivatibes.

    Knowing that, you can just write down the answer.

    Can someone please help me do this problem? That would be great! Simplify the expression: sin theta + cos theta * cot theta I'll use A for theta. Cot A = sin A / cos A Therefore: sin A + (cos A * sin A / cos A) = sin A + sin A = 2
