High School Teacher
Here `f(x)=sin(x)` and `g(x)=x^2`.
General power rule
We will also need product rule
`(f cdot g)'=f' cdot g+f cdot g'`
Let's now differentiate our function `y`.
We first use product rule.
Now we use general power rule for
and then we use chain rule for
Now we put that into (1) to get `y'.`
Thus the solution is:
