alright so i was given this problem:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

f(X) = sin(cos(x^5))

and it tell me to find the first derivative of it.

would i first solve the derivative of (cos(x^5)) first and then that answer with sin?

or would i use the chain rule?

thanks in advanced.
