1. By writing cosecx =1 / sin xand using the quotient rule find the derivative of cosecx.

So ive got to -cosx/sin^2x which is -cotx/sinx which is -cotxcosecx is this right?

Use the chain rule to find the derivative of tan-1(x/a)
4. Is the derviative of tan-1u , 1/(1+u^2)

Yes.
For the above question the answer is a/a^2+x^2 and i got -a/a^2+x^2
Where have i got the minus sign from?
