  1. (x - 1/(2x))^2 = x^2 - 1 + 1/(4x)

    ((x-1)/(2x))^2 = (x^2 - 2x + 1)/(4x^2) = 1/4 - 1/(2x) + 1/(4x^2)

    Not sure which you meant, but either one is just a sum of terms, which are just powers of x. Just use the normal power rule (or lnx for 1/x) and things are easy.

  2. oops. Top one should end with 1/(4x^2)
