What is the derivative of `y = sin^5x - cos^3x`

### 1 Answer | Add Yours

The function y = `sin^5 x - cos ^3 x`

The derivative of y can be calculated using the chain rule. This gives

y' = `5*cos x*sin^4x + 3*sin x*cos^2x`

**The derivative of `y = sin^5 x - cos ^3 x` is `y' = 5*cos x*sin^4x + 3*sin x*cos^2x` **
