An illustration of the letter 'A' in a speech bubbles

Given: `G(y)=ln((2y+1)^5/sqrt(y^2+1))`

Rewrite the equation using the Law of Logarithms. Then find the derivative of the function. 

`G(y)=5ln(2y+1)-(1)/(2)ln(y^2+1)`

`G'(y)=(5)/(2y+1)(2)-(1)/(2(y^2+1))(2y)`

The derivative is: `G'(y)=(10)/(2y+1)-(y)/(y^2+1)`
