# How do you differentiate #f(x)=ln(3(e^(sin^2x))^4)# using the chain rule?

##### 1 Answer

I would start with something entirely different than the chain rule.

I would start with simplifying this expression as it is before differentiating.

Remember two rules:

Using this rules, the expression can be simplifyed in quite a drastical way:

...remember that

Now, this is something that can be differentiated in a reasonably easy way - better than the former one anyway.

As you know,
