how do i take the derivative of sqr(4 + sqr(3x))?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

My teacher wants me to do it as a chain rule composition function so i separated it into

F(x)= (4+x)^1/2 and G(x)= (3x)^1/2

but i dont know where to go from here because i dont know how to take the derivative of f(x)
