To solve for dy/dx, apply chain rule.

So, take the derivative of the outermost function first.

`(dy)/(dx)= [sin(sin(sinx))]'`

`(dy)/(dx)=cos (sin(sinx))*[sin(sinx)]'`

`(dy)/(dx)=cos (sin(sinx))*cos(sinx)*[sinx]'`

`(dy)/(dx)=cos (sin(sinx))*cos(sinx)*cosx*[x]'`

`(dy)/(dx)=cos (sin(sinx))*cos(sinx)*cosx*1`

`(dy)/(dx)=cos (sin(sinx))*cos(sinx)*cosx`


Hence,  `(dy)/(dx)=cosx*cos(sinx)*cos(sin(sinx))` .
