alright so i was given this problem:
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.

Chain rule.

Start by putting [itex]u=cos(x^2)[/itex] and [itex]y = sin u.[/itex]
