When explaining the rules please highlight the terms you are speaking about just don't re-display a changed equation ..it is too confusing

your explanation of the proof graphically that derivative of sinx = cosx does not make sense to me because you introduced a sin curve created to prove your points using tangent derivations that need to be proven true over the number line ad infinitum. trying to prove this by using it's own definition is merely making a self-definition from it's own process and dividing by 2. Who invented the sine curve? sinx is trigonometric and not algebraic therefore it cannot be proven algebraically.

This is going to take me a bit of time to fully absorb! My learning in calculus is way back at the beginning, so you are way ahead of wherever I am. Thanks for showing me what is ahead of me.

I am having issues with finding the second derivative of this function. I have the first but am struggling to get the second. f(x) = (2x^2+ 1)^3. can you help me with this?
