Confused! Finding derivatives of f(x)?

  • #1

Homework Statement



Find the derivative of f(x):
f(x)= 1/ ((ln(x)^2))


Homework Equations



f(x)= ln(x)
f'(x)= 1/((ln(x))

The Attempt at a Solution



Dx(1/ln(x)^2) =
Dx((ln(x))^-2)=
-2*(ln(x)^-3) * Dx(ln(x)) =
-2*(ln(x)^-3) * 1/x =
-2/(x*ln(x)^3)

Are these the correct steps? I'm getting myself confused
