    Doesnt it differentiate like this so no sin2t at this point?

    X= √3sin2t

    DX/DT = 2√3cos2t
    I don't think you actually read my other two posts. That is still correct.

    -4sin2t / 2√3cos2t

    2/√3 x tan2t

    The poor typing didn't help in the original question. A scan of the question would have been more helpful.

    Nearly. Check your signs and rationalise the denominator.

    The ambiguous notation is becoming painful.

    Couldn't quote your other one :/

    -2/3 * √3 * tan2t

    I'm 99.99% certain that is right but it is still ambiguous. If you want to post questions at this level you really should bracket everything in sight or preferably use LaTex.
