Find the derivative of the function: https://webwork2.math.ohio-state.edu/courses/math151wi06sm/tmp/png/Hmwk4/126384/kopko.4-prob16image1.png [Broken]

My answer:

Can please someone tell me where I messed up.

Edit: i used that chain rule or something like that

So first I changed the equation into [5x+(3x+sqrt(2x))^.5]^.5

then I found the first derivative, so it was .5[5x+(3x+sqrt(2x))^.5]^-.5

Next I did it for 5x and the 1/2 power-> 5+.5(3x+sqrt(2x))^-.5

I did the same for the following 2 steps. I hope that helps.
