    In each of the following parts, you should simplify your answers where it is appropriate to do so.

    (1) (a) Write down the derivative of each of the functions

    f(x) = e^-8x and g(x)=sin(4x)

    (b) Hence, by using the Product Rule, differentiate the function

    k(x) = e^-8xsin (4x)

    (2) (a) Write down the derivative of each of the functions

    f(t) = ln(6t) (t > 0) and g(t) = t^4 + 1

    (b) Hence, by using the Quotient Rule, differentiate the function

    k(t)=(ln(6t))/(t^4+1) (t>0)

    (3) (a) Write down the derivative of the function

    f(x) = cos1/2 x

    (b) Hence, by using the Composite Rule, differentiate the function

    f(x) = (cos(1/2x))^4
