wait no i don't see it... am i supposed to add your working to the one i did above? also why do you have the d and dxs all over the working? :o

OpenStudy (anonymous):

ohhh okay so you did the product rule

OpenStudy (gorv):

\[\frac{ d \ln(sinxcosx)}{ dx}=\frac{ 1 }{ sinx*cosx }*\frac{ d(sinxcosx) }{ dx }\]

OpenStudy (gorv):

yeah product rule after diff.. ln

OpenStudy (anonymous):

so i'll get cosx(cosx)+sinx(-sinx) =cos^2x-sin^2x?
