There are two differentiation questions that I am working on and was wondering if I did it right and if I did it wrong, to get some help:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

1) y=(2x^2-x)(3x^2+5)^8

let u = (2x^2-x) and let v=(3x^2+5)^8

y'=uv' + u'v

u'=4x-1

v'=48x(3x^2+5)^7

y'=(2x^2-x)(48x)(3x^2+5)^7+(4x-1)(3x^2+5)^8

2) This one was the one I was stuck on. I tried using quotient and product rule:

y=(t^2-6t/t^2+6t)^5

y'=5(t^2-6t/t^2+6t)^4 . 1[(2t-6)(t^2+6t)-(t^2-6)(2t+6)/(t^2+6t)^2

Sorry if it's a bit messy. I still haven't gotten the hang of using LaTex yet >_<
