Hey whats up,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

The problem is....find the derivative of:

y= x^2 sec(x-5)

My question is...Would I start off by using the product rule and combine the chain rule with it, with x-5 being the inner function and sec(u) being the outer function? thanks...
