    Hey guys, I’m hoping one of you guys could ease my doubts today, How would you go about answering the following question ? ;

    7) The curve C has equation
    y= ln(x^2 +1)/x^2 + 1

    a) find dy/dx as a single fraction

    b) hence find the exact coordinates of the stationary points of C.

    Thank you so much in advance btw )))))

    for the last question, did you have to leave the theta values in exact form?

    If a question doesn't say "give the answer in exact form", then you generally aren't required to. However, the question is split into parts, and the answer from one part is used in the next part, you should use the exact value, so that your working in the next part is accurate.
