This isnt a homework problem but something that stumped me in selfstudy, however i see this to be the most approperiate place to ask for help nevertheless.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

This is straight out of Adan's calculus 6e, Chain rule section.

y= (x^5)sqrt(3+x^6) / (4+x^2)^3

To me it looks like a combination of the chain rule, product rule and quotient rule. But i donät see how to go about solving it, whats the proper order to apply the rules?

Also I don¨t see what the outside function is supposed to be for the whole expression.

Any help would be much appreciated, and general tips for problems requiring multiple differentiation rules would be even more so.

Thanks.
