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

Find dy/dx.

[itex]y=sin^{2}(3x-2)[/itex]

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

Using the chain rule,

[itex]y=sin^{2}u[/itex]

[itex]y'=2sinucosu[/itex]

[itex]u=3x-2[/itex]

[itex]u'=3[/itex]

[itex]\frac{dy}{dx}=6sin(3x-2)cos(3x-2)[/itex]

Answer is:

[itex]3sin(6x-4)[/itex]
