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

`y=r/sqrt(r^2+1)`

`y'=r*(-1/2)(r^2+1)^((-1/2)-1) (2r) + 1/sqrt(r^2+1)`

`y'=-r^2(r^2+1)^(-3/2) + 1/sqrt(r^2+1)`

`y'= -r^2/(r^2+1)^(3/2) +1/sqrt(r^2+1)`

`y'= -(r^2/((r^2+1)(sqrt(r^2+1))))+1/sqrt(r^2+1)`

`y' =(-r^2+r^2+1)/((r^2+1)(sqrt(r^2+1)))` 

`y'=(1)/((r^2+1)(sqrt(r^2+1)))`
