    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    Find the d^2 y /d^2 x for y= 3t^3+4t and x=6t^4+7t

    I just made one up similiar to what my teacher gave to do

    3. The attempt at a solution

    Dont know how to do it, i know i need 2nd derivatives but what then help i need please
