    i'm still getting this question wrong. please check for my errors: Use Simpson's Rule with n = 10 to estimate the arc length of the curve. y = tan x, 0 <or= x <or= pi/4 .. this is what i did: y' = sec(x)^2 (y')^2 = [sec(x)^2]^2 [f'(x)]^2 = sec(x)^4

    I am trying to find: dy/dx for y = sec(tan x) I have the answer, but I have no idea how to get there. I know that the derivative of sec x = sec x tan x and that the derivative of tan x is sec^2 x. But sec doesn't have an x, so ...?
