Differentiate

e^x * cotx / 5sqrtx^2

[Sorry for not using the formatting things. They didn't seem to be working for me, and this is urgent!]

2. Relevant equations

The quotient rule seems like that's the way to go...

3. The attempt at a solution

At first I tried using the product rule on the numerator, then plugging that into the quotient rule formula, but that was needlessly complicated. So, I went straight into using the quotient rule, but I got a huge messy equation. Could anyone clarify what I SHOULD be getting?

All help is greatly appreciated!
