Answer

\[y'' = 2{\csc ^2}x\cot x\]

Work Step by Step

\[\begin{gathered} y = \cot x \hfill \\ \hfill \\ differentiate\,\,to\,\,find\,\,y{\,^,} \hfill \\ \hfill \\ \frac{{dy}}{{dx}} = - {\csc ^2}x \hfill \\ \hfill \\ find\,\,\,y{\,^{,\,}} \hfill \\ \hfill \\ y'' = - 2\left( {\csc x\,\,} \right)\,{\left( {\csc x} \right)^\prime } \hfill \\ \hfill \\ differentiate\,\,to\,\,find\,\,{y^,}^, \hfill \\ use\,\,the\,\,product\,\,rule \hfill \\ \hfill \\ y'' = - 2\,\left( {\csc x} \right)\,\left( { - \csc x\cot x} \right) \hfill \\ \hfill \\ simplify \hfill \\ \hfill \\ y'' = 2{\csc ^2}x\cot x \hfill \\ \end{gathered} \]
