    could someone differentiate
    3(5-2x)^5

    i have an answer but need to check it thnks.
    i need to find dx/dy instead of dx/dy.

    do you just put it over 1

    it then says differentiate (still dx/dy)

    1 over 3x-5
    is it just 3? doesnt seem right lol

    its  \frac{1}{3x-5}

    so that equal (3x-5)^(-1)

    ok thanks

    i know its the quotient rule but i want to make sure im doing it write, what is dy/dx of

    {y=}\frac{sin3x}{x}

    i got
    {y=}\frac{sin3x - x3cos3x}{x^2}

    but dont have a clue of its right

    You have messed up the signs in the numerator of your answer.

    You don't have to use quotient rule here if you don't want to.

    y=x^{-1}sin{(3x)}

    Spoiler:

    \frac{dy}{dx}=\frac{3x\cos{(3x)}-\sin{(3x)}}{x^2}

    thanks i got it in the end

    would 7cot5x = y

    differentiate to
    -35cosec5x
