Step by step solution

Problem

$\frac{d}{dx}\left(\frac{3}{\ln\left(\sqrt{\sin\left(x\right)-\cos\left(x\right)}\right)}\right)$
1

Applying the quotient rule which states that if $f(x)$ and $g(x)$ are functions and $h(x)$ is the function defined by ${\displaystyle h(x) = \frac{f(x)}{g(x)}}$, where ${g(x) \neq 0}$, then ${\displaystyle h'(x) = \frac{f'(x) \cdot g(x) - g'(x) \cdot f(x)}{g(x)^2}}$

$\frac{\ln\left(\sqrt{\sin\left(x\right)-\cos\left(x\right)}\right)\frac{d}{dx}\left(3\right)-3\frac{d}{dx}\left(\ln\left(\sqrt{\sin\left(x\right)-\cos\left(x\right)}\right)\right)}{\ln\left(\sqrt{\sin\left(x\right)-\cos\left(x\right)}\right)^2}$
2

The derivative of the constant function is equal to zero

$\frac{0\ln\left(\sqrt{\sin\left(x\right)-\cos\left(x\right)}\right)-3\frac{d}{dx}\left(\ln\left(\sqrt{\sin\left(x\right)-\cos\left(x\right)}\right)\right)}{\ln\left(\sqrt{\sin\left(x\right)-\cos\left(x\right)}\right)^2}$
3

Any expression multiplied by $0$ is equal to $0$

$\frac{0-3\frac{d}{dx}\left(\ln\left(\sqrt{\sin\left(x\right)-\cos\left(x\right)}\right)\right)}{\ln\left(\sqrt{\sin\left(x\right)-\cos\left(x\right)}\right)^2}$
4

The derivative of the natural logarithm of a function is equal to the derivative of the function divided by that function. If $f(x)=ln\:a$ (where $a$ is a function of $x$), then $\displaystyle f'(x)=\frac{a'}{a}$

$\frac{0-3\frac{d}{dx}\left(\sqrt{\sin\left(x\right)-\cos\left(x\right)}\right)\left(\frac{1}{\sqrt{\sin\left(x\right)-\cos\left(x\right)}}\right)}{\ln\left(\sqrt{\sin\left(x\right)-\cos\left(x\right)}\right)^2}$
5

The power rule for differentiation states that if $n$ is a real number and $f(x) = x^n$, then $f'(x) = nx^{n-1}$

$\frac{0-3\cdot \frac{1}{2}\left(\frac{1}{\sqrt{\sin\left(x\right)-\cos\left(x\right)}}\right)\frac{d}{dx}\left(\sin\left(x\right)-\cos\left(x\right)\right)\left(\sin\left(x\right)-\cos\left(x\right)\right)^{-\frac{1}{2}}}{\ln\left(\sqrt{\sin\left(x\right)-\cos\left(x\right)}\right)^2}$
6

The derivative of a sum of two functions is the sum of the derivatives of each function

$\frac{0-3\cdot \frac{1}{2}\left(\frac{1}{\sqrt{\sin\left(x\right)-\cos\left(x\right)}}\right)\left(\frac{d}{dx}\left(-\cos\left(x\right)\right)+\frac{d}{dx}\left(\sin\left(x\right)\right)\right)\left(\sin\left(x\right)-\cos\left(x\right)\right)^{-\frac{1}{2}}}{\ln\left(\sqrt{\sin\left(x\right)-\cos\left(x\right)}\right)^2}$
7

The derivative of a function multiplied by a constant is equal to the constant times the derivative of the function

$\frac{0-3\cdot \frac{1}{2}\left(\frac{1}{\sqrt{\sin\left(x\right)-\cos\left(x\right)}}\right)\left(\frac{d}{dx}\left(\sin\left(x\right)\right)-\frac{d}{dx}\left(\cos\left(x\right)\right)\right)\left(\sin\left(x\right)-\cos\left(x\right)\right)^{-\frac{1}{2}}}{\ln\left(\sqrt{\sin\left(x\right)-\cos\left(x\right)}\right)^2}$
8

The derivative of the sine of a function is equal to the cosine of that function times the derivative of that function, in other words, if ${f(x) = \sin(x)}$, then ${f'(x) = \cos(x)\cdot D_x(x)}$

$\frac{0-3\cdot \frac{1}{2}\left(\frac{1}{\sqrt{\sin\left(x\right)-\cos\left(x\right)}}\right)\left(\cos\left(x\right)-\frac{d}{dx}\left(\cos\left(x\right)\right)\right)\left(\sin\left(x\right)-\cos\left(x\right)\right)^{-\frac{1}{2}}}{\ln\left(\sqrt{\sin\left(x\right)-\cos\left(x\right)}\right)^2}$
9

The derivative of the cosine of a function is equal to minus the sine of the function times the derivative of the function, in other words, if $f(x) = \cos(x)$, then $f'(x) = -\sin(x)\cdot D_x(x)$

$\frac{0-3\cdot \frac{1}{2}\left(\frac{1}{\sqrt{\sin\left(x\right)-\cos\left(x\right)}}\right)\left(\cos\left(x\right)-1\left(-1\right)\sin\left(x\right)\right)\left(\sin\left(x\right)-\cos\left(x\right)\right)^{-\frac{1}{2}}}{\ln\left(\sqrt{\sin\left(x\right)-\cos\left(x\right)}\right)^2}$

$\frac{-\frac{3}{2}\cdot\frac{1}{\sqrt{\sin\left(x\right)-\cos\left(x\right)}}\left(\sin\left(x\right)+\cos\left(x\right)\right)\left(\sin\left(x\right)-\cos\left(x\right)\right)^{-\frac{1}{2}}}{\ln\left(\sqrt{\sin\left(x\right)-\cos\left(x\right)}\right)^2}$
12
