If $y = sin(\sqrt[]{sinx + cosx})$ , Find $\frac{dy}{dx}$
1 Answer


$ y = sin (\sqrt[]{sin x + cos x}) $

This problem can be solved using chain rule of diffrentiation:

The chain rule states that the derivative of f(g(x)) is f'(g(x))⋅g'(x).

In other words, it helps us differentiate composite functions.

For example, sin(x²) is a composite function because it can be constructed as f(g(x)) for f(x)=sin(x) and g(x)=x².

Using the chain rule and the derivatives of sin(x) and x², we can then find the derivative of sin(x²)

Let's solve our Problem :

Differentiate L.H.S and R.H.S w.r.t x

$\frac{dy}{dx}$ = $ \frac{d ( sin (\sqrt[]{sin x + cos x}) )}{dx}$

= $cos (\sqrt{sin x + cos x})× (d/dx)\sqrt{sin x + cos x})$

= $cos (\sqrt{sin x + cos x})× 1/2 × \sqrt[-1/2]{sin x + cos x} ( cos x – sin x) $

= $\frac{1}{2} cos (\sqrt{sin x + cos x}) ( cos x – sin x)/\sqrt{sin x + cos x}$
