2. You will have to use implicit differentiation for questions like these. Not sure if what you got is right though? How did you do it?

Sorry i meant to say dy/dx=cosx.dy/dz how would i proceed to find d2y/dx2
4. Ok. That's looks right (I'm trusting you here ). So we need to differentiate both sides with respect to x. To differentiate the RHS we need to use the product rule.
So we have .
I assume your trouble is differentiating the second term.
.
From the substitution you have been given you should be able to find an expression for dz/dx.
Hope this helps.
