`y = e^(k tan(sqrt(x)))` Find the derivative of the function.

Expert Answers

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

`y'= d/dx e^(ktan(sqrt(x)))`

`= e^(ktan(sqrt(x))) d/dx (ktan(sqrt(x)))`

`= k e^(ktan (sqrt(x))) * sec^2(sqrt(x)) * d/dx (sqrt(x))`

`= k*e^(ktan(sqrt(x))) * sec^2(sqrt(x))*(1/2 x^(-1/2))`

`= k/(2sqrt(x)) *e^(ktan(sqrt(x))) * sec^2(sqrt(x))`

Hope this helps.
