## Homework Statement

Evaluate the derivative of the following function:

f(w)= cos(sin^(-1)2w)

## Homework Equations

Chain Rule

## The Attempt at a Solution

I did just as the chain rule says where

F'(w)= -[2sin(sin^(-1)2w)]/[sqrt(1-4w^(2))

but the book gave the answer as F'(w)=(-4w)/sqrt(1-4w^(2))

and I'm wondering if there is some kind of simplification I'm missing. Why would sin and sin^(-1) disappear?
