## Question:

1. Find the derivative of the function, and evaluate it at {eq}x = 1 {/eq} (radian). Round your answer to the nearest hundredth.

{eq}y = \tan(9x^2 - 7x + 3) {/eq}

2. Use the Chain Rule to find the derivative, then evaluate it at {eq}x = 1 {/eq} .

{eq}y = (4x^2 - 9x)^3 {/eq}

## Chain Rule:

The chain rule is a rule among the set of rules of derivatives. It is used to find the derivative of a function where one function is inside the other. It is used to find the derivative of a composite function. It states:

{eq}\dfrac{d}{dx} (f(g(x)) = f'(g(x)) \cdot g'(x) {/eq}

View this answer(1) The given function is,

{eq}y = \tan(9x^2 - 7x + 3) {/eq}

Here one function is inside the other. So we apply the chain rule to find the...
