y=1/sinx

y'=(sinx*d/dx(1)-1*d/dx(sinx))/(sin2x)

y'=(sinx*0-1(cosx))/(sin2x)

y'=(-cosx)/(sin2x)

y'=-(cosx/sinx)*(1/sinx)

y'=-cotx*cscx

The derivative of sin(x) is cos(x).

Write it as (1/3)x and take the derivative. You get (1/3)x0 = 1/3 * 1 = 1/3 ■

(1/2(x^-1/2))/x

Well if you have 5/X then you can rewrite this like 5x-1. And the derivative to that is -5x-2 and that can be rewrote to: -(5/x2).

at the angles 0 and 360 degrees, or 0 and 2pi
