Homework Statement
Finding the derivative of f(x):
f(x)=arcsin(√x)
Homework Equations
f(x)=arcsin
f'(x)=1/(√1-x^{2})
The Attempt at a Solution
1/√(1-x^{2})*1/2x^{-1/2}
Or would I be doing the product rule?
no, your chain rule method is correct,[1/√(1-x^{2})*1/2x^{-1/2}
Or would I be doing the product rule?
Thank you!hi christinee112! welcome to pf!
no, your chain rule method is correct,
but you've confused yourself by using "x" to mean two different things!
