What is the derivative of ln(2x)?

I was just thinking about this, and I got 2 answers. I am in Calc 2 right now.

2. Relevant equations

Derivative of ln(x) = 1/x

3. The attempt at a solution

Since d/dx lna = (1/a)*(derivative of a)

Thus d/dx ln2x = (1/2x)*(2)

BUT

I can also do this, I think: d/dx ln2x = 2d/dx lnx = 2*1/x = 2/x

I am CONFUSED!! lol !:)

Please tell me which is the correct method! :)

Thanks! :)
