what is the derivative of e^(3*ln(x^2))

i keep getting 6/x * e^(3*ln(x^2))

but that's not one of the multiple choice so am i doing something wront.

also, what is the limit of (1-cosx)/(2*(sinx)^2) as x approaches zero. is the answer zero or nonexistent

The derivative of e^(3*ln(x^2)):
Let's write ln (x^2) as 2 ln x. Then
d/dx [e^(6 ln x)] = [e^(6 ln x)] * (6/x)

The limit of (1-cosx)/(2*(sinx)^2) as x approaches zero. The answer is NOT zero or undetermined.

Use L'Hopital's rule. The ratio of derivatives of numerator and denominator is
sin x/[4 sin x *cos x] = 1/(4 cos x)
At x = 0, that becomes 1/4

How do you get m=0? from taking the second derivative? does c=1? Can you check my work on how I get the derivative of R=M^2(c/2-m/3) NEXT R=1/2(CM^2)-1/3(M^3) NEXT dR/dM=CM-M^2. I checked in the back, and that was the answer for

R=M^2(c/2-m/3) dR/dM=CM-M^2 I found the derivative. Now how would I find the vale of M that maximize the derivative dR/dM? set it to zero, and solve for m. You get two solutions. Use the second derivative to see which one is the

Again, that all makes sense. Thank you very much. Thank you very much. I did get the derivative you show, but then divided through by 6 to get at the stationary points. Was that wrong? I'm only looking for a critique please, not
