Thank you very much Zacken

I'm not sure I would have ever spotted that!

Do you think a student would still be able to achieve full marks if the answer was left unsimplified as dy/dx=+- 1/(8(1-1/16x^2)) (i.e. The penultimate line)?

I'm not entirely sure, but unless asked for a specific form, I don't think they should lose any marks.

That is right! you have razor-sharp eyes for understanding mathematical steps.
