Find the derivative of
$h\left(x\right)=\text{cos}\phantom{\rule{0.1em}{0ex}}\left(g(x)\right).$
Think of
$h\left(x\right)=\text{cos}(g(x))$ as
$f\left(g\left(x\right)\right)$ where
$f\left(x\right)=\text{cos}\phantom{\rule{0.1em}{0ex}}x.$ Since
${f}^{\prime}\left(x\right)=\text{\u2212}\text{sin}\phantom{\rule{0.1em}{0ex}}x.$ we have
${f}^{\prime}\left(g\left(x\right)\right)=\text{\u2212}\text{sin}\phantom{\rule{0.1em}{0ex}}\left(g\left(x\right)\right).$ Then we do the following calculation.
Thus, the derivative of
$h\left(x\right)=\text{cos}\phantom{\rule{0.1em}{0ex}}\left(g(x)\right)$ is given by
${h}^{\prime}\left(x\right)=\text{\u2212}\text{sin}\phantom{\rule{0.1em}{0ex}}\left(g\left(x\right)\right){g}^{\prime}\left(x\right).$
At this point we provide a list of derivative formulas that may be obtained by applying the chain rule in conjunction with the formulas for derivatives of trigonometric functions. Their derivations are similar to those used in
[link] and
[link] . For convenience, formulas are also given in Leibniz’s notation, which some students find easier to remember. (We discuss the chain rule using Leibniz’s notation at the end of this section.) It is not absolutely necessary to memorize these as separate formulas as they are all applications of the chain rule to previously learned formulas.
Using the chain rule with trigonometric functions
For all values of
$x$ for which the derivative is defined,
We can now combine the chain rule with other rules for differentiating functions, but when we are differentiating the composition of three or more functions, we need to apply the chain rule more than once. If we look at this situation in general terms, we can generate a formula, but we do not need to remember it, as we can simply apply the chain rule multiple times.
use the substitution t=1+x.
dt=dx
√(1+x)dx = √tdt
= t^1/2 dt
integral is then
= t^(1/2 + 1) / (1/2 + 1) + C
= (2/3) t^(3/2) + C
substitute back t=1+x
= (2/3) (1+x)^(3/2) + C

can you please post the question again here so I can see what your talking about

can you determine whether f(x)=x(cube) +4 is a one to one function
Crystal
one to one means that every input has a single output, and not multiple outputs. whenever the highest power of a given polynomial is odd then that function is said to be odd. a big help to help you understand this concept would be to graph the function and see visually what's going on.

can you show the steps from going from
3/(x-2)= y
to
x= 3/y +2
I'm confused as to how y ends up as the divisor
step 1: take reciprocal of both sides
(x-2)/3 = 1/y
step 2: multiply both sides by 3
x-2 = 3/y
step 3: add 2 to both sides
x = 3/y + 2
ps nice farcry 3 background!
Andrew
first you cross multiply and get y(x-2)=3
then apply distribution and the left side of the equation such as yx-2y=3
then you add 2y in both sides of the equation and get yx=3+2y
and last divide both sides of the equation by y and you get x=3/y+2
Ioana
Multiply both sides by (x-2) to get 3=y(x-2)
Then you can divide both sides by y (it's just a multiplied term now) to get 3/y = (x-2). Since the parentheses aren't doing anything for the right side, you can drop them, and add the 2 to both sides to get 3/y + 2 = x

thank you ladies and gentlemen I appreciate the help!

keep practicing and asking questions, practice makes perfect! and be aware that are often different paths to the same answer, so the more you familiarize yourself with these multiple different approaches, the less confused you'll be.
they are simply "anti-derivatives". so you should first learn how to take derivatives of any given function before going into taking integrals of any given function.
Andrew
best way to learn is always to look into a few basic examples of different kinds of functions, and then if you have any further questions, be sure to state specifically which step in the solution you are not understanding.

example 1)
say f'(x) = x, f(x) = ?
well there is a rule called the 'power rule' which states that if f'(x) = x^n, then f(x) = x^(n+1)/(n+1)
so in this case, f(x) = x^2/2
