Answer

\[\,\left( { - \infty ,0} \right)\,\,\cup\,\left( {0,\infty } \right)\]

Work Step by Step

\[\begin{gathered} \frac{d}{{dx}}\,\left( {\ln {x^2}} \right) \hfill \\ \hfill \\ Use\,\,\,the\,\,formula\,\,\frac{d}{{dx}}\,\,\left[ {\ln u} \right] = \frac{{{u^,}}}{u} \hfill \\ \hfill \\ then \hfill \\ \hfill \\ \frac{d}{{dx}}\,\left( {\ln {x^2}} \right) = \frac{{\frac{d}{{dx}}\left[ {2x} \right]}}{{{x^2}}} \hfill \\ \hfill \\ therefore \hfill \\ \hfill \\ = \frac{2}{x} \hfill \\ \hfill \\ Interval \hfill \\ \hfill \\ \,\left( { - \infty ,0} \right)\,\,\cup\,\left( {0,\infty } \right) \hfill \\ \end{gathered} \]
