    Get a common denominator in each bracket, then multiply the numerators and denominators and simplify.

    If your second bracket is supposed to be dt/dx it's incorrect, you can't just flip the two fractions like that and get the correct result.

    Common denominator then flip.

    Try doing 1/(1/2 + 1/2) and see what happens if you don't simplify. Your way gets you 2 + 2

    The proper way gets you 1

    I'd personally make the two fractions a single fraction with a common denominator and then inverse afterwards, so have a go at that.

    ^^take note of asurats post

    take this example;  \displaystyle x = 3 + 2 but  \displaystyle \frac{1}{x} \neq \frac{1}{3} + \frac{1}{2} , notice how you cant just flip both fractions like that


    so score out the last line and get dx/dt and dy/dt both as a single fraction with a common denominator. btw your writing is really nice

    PS aren't you a fan of the quotient rule?

    You're supposed to remove the (1+t)^2 in the denominator

    EDIT: opps, forget what I said. Thought that bottom answer was dy/dx and not dy/dt
