Chain Rule: Inverse Sine |

Some problems provide the opportunity for more than one mistake. The Goal
Find
Mistake 1
Find the mistake: (Roll the mouse over the math to see a hint in red) Correction 1
(Roll the mouse over the area above to see the corrections in blue) Mistake 2
Find the mistake: (Roll the mouse over the math to see a hint in red) Correction 2
(Roll the mouse over the area above to see the corrections in blue)
Find the mistake: (Roll the mouse over the math to see a hint in red) Correction 3
(Roll the mouse over the area above to see the corrections in blue) Explanations In the first mistake the chain rule is not used correctly. The chain rule says:
In this example f(x) = sin In the second mistake the derivative was computed as f'(x)g'(x). In the third mistake the derivative of inverse sine is incorrect. |
