Problem 2-11: Differentiating by Chain Rule

Differentiate  \left(1+\sqrt{x}\right)^{8} by using the chain rule.

Chain rule:  \displaystyle\frac{du}{dx}=\displaystyle\frac{du}{dv}\displaystyle\frac{dv}{dx}

We must determine the individual components of the chain rule to apply it. Set  u= \left(1+\sqrt{x}\right)^{8} and  v=1+\sqrt{x}.
