I'm stuck on the very last line. I'm just confused on how they simplified the expression and got the final answer. Any help would be great!

(a+b)/c = a/c + b/c

and noting that "a" is a fraction so a=d/e so

a/c = d/(ec)

as

(d/e)/(c/1) = (d/e)*(1/c) = d/(ec)

and cancelling the common (x+1)

Presume youre ok when they sub for u,v and the derivatives. Then its just a case of

(a+b)/c = a/c + b/c

and noting that "a" is a fraction so a=d/e so

a/c = d/(ec)

as

(d/e)/(c/1) = (d/e)*(1/c) = d/(ec)

and cancelling the common (x+1)

(a+b)/c = a/c + b/c

and noting that "a" is a fraction so a=d/e so

a/c = d/(ec)

as

(d/e)/(c/1) = (d/e)*(1/c) = d/(ec)

Thank youuu I finally get it now! 🙂

ln(x)(x+1)^(-1)

using the product rule so

1/(x(x+1)) - ln(x)/(x+1)^2

Sometimes the quotient rule (which is a particular case of the product rule) makes things more complex, though it obviously gives an equivalent expression. The usual quotient rule expression for the derivative of f/g is equvalent to

f'/g - fg'/g^2

which is what they wanted here.

Just as an aside, youd avoid the "complicated" simplifying at the end if you noted that youre differentiating

ln(x)(x+1)^(-1)

using the product rule so

1/(x(x+1)) - ln(x)/(x+1)^2

Sometimes the quotient rule (which is a particular case of the product rule) makes things more complex, though it obviously gives an equivalent expression. The usual quotient rule expression for the derivative of f/g is equvalent to

f'/g - fg'/g^2

which is what they wanted here.
