I'm a little confused as to when to stop taking the derivative of the inside function when using the chain rule...(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Lets say I have f( g(x^2) )

Would this be correct?

f`( g(x^2) ) * g`(x^2) * 2x ?

Or do I keep on going until the x is completely gone from the equation?
