In one physics problem if $$r^2= \lambda^2(1+\frac{m}{2\lambda})^2$$(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

what is ##dr^2 ?##

Should I find ##dr## starting from ##r= \lambda(1+\frac{m}{2\lambda})## first and then square or find ##dr^2## starting from r^2? I know this is a basic question in differentiation using chain rule but it seems I am stuck over this..
