Hi, I am having some trouble with this problem.

View attachment 7483

I have completed part a but I am stuck on part b and c.

I used the quotient rule to try and find the first derivative, but I am unsure if I have done so correctly. This is my work for part b so far.

\[g\prime(x)=\dfrac{(bc+ax^d)(c+dx^{d-1})-(c+x^d)(bc+adx^{d-1})}{(c+x^d)^2}

\]

If I am doing this properly, I am a bit unsure of how I should simplify this derivative. Thanks, for any help.
