Q. The function

*h*(*x*) is composed of two functions. The outside function is cos (□) and the inside function is ln*x*. Which formula best describes*h*?*h*(

*x*) = cos(ln

*x*)

*h*(

*x*) = ln(cos

*h*(

*x*) = cos

*x*· ln

Q. If

*s*= 4*t*^{2}+ 3 and*r*= cos*s*, then to find the derivative of*r*with respect to*t*we would use the version of the chain rule that saysQ. The derivative of ln(5

*x*^{6}+ 7*x*^{2}) isQ. Which function's derivative is -7sin(

*x*)cos^{6}*x*?cos

^{5}*x*-cos

^{5}*x*-cos

^{7}*x*cos

^{7}*x*Q. Find

*y'*given that*y*is a function of*x*and*xy*+*x*+*y*= 0Q. To use implicit differentiation on the equation we need to use

the chain rule and the product rule

the chain rule but not the product rule
