(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Diffentiate [tex]f(x)=\sin^{-1}(x^2+1)[/tex]

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

[tex]f'(x)=(-1)(2x)\sin^{-2} (x^2+1)\cos (x^2+1)[/tex]

am i correct ? But wolfram alpha is giving me something else
