You need to differentiate the function with respect to x, using chain rule, such that:

`f'(x) = (arcsin(x^2))'*(x^2)'`

`f'(x) = 1/(sqrt(1 - (x^2)^2))*(2x)`

`f'(x) = (2x)/(sqrt(1 - (x^4))`

Hence, evaluating derivative of the given function, using the chain rule, yields `f'(x) = (2x)/(sqrt(1 - (x^4)).`
