Solution:

Concept:The derivative of a function   is the rate of change of the function or in other words, it is the amount of change in function at a given point. It is denoted by .

The derivative of some functions are given in the table below:

 

 

Calculation:

Step:1 The function is  .

Now take the derivative of the above equation.

Step:2 Simplify further to solve for the derivate as shown below:

Step:3 From the Table 1, the derivative of cosxis  . Use the value of derivative of cosx and solve further as below:

The derivative valueis  .

 

Answer:The derivative of  is  .
