(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. Let the function f(x) have the property that f′(x)=x+1/x−3. If g(x)=f(x^2) find g′(x).

I've tried some steps already, however my answer is still wrong..

g'(x)=?

g'(x)=f'(x) at x^2 so, f'(x^2)?

(x+1)'(x-3)-(x+1)(x-3)'/(x-3)^2

in the end i get -4/(x-3)^2 and then I plug in x^2..

>-4/(x^4-6x^2+9)??

this seems to be wrong so could someone point out where my concept is flawed?

Thanks
