$y' = \frac{cos(2\sqrt x)}{\sqrt x}$

Work Step by Step

$y = sin (2 \sqrt x)$ $y' = (sin (2 \sqrt x))'$ The inner function is $g(x) = 2\sqrt x$ and the outer function is $f(u) = sin(u)$ $f'(u) = cos(u)$ $y' = (sin (2 \sqrt x))' = cos(g(x))g'(x) = cos(2\sqrt x)\times\frac{2}{2\sqrt x}= \frac{cos(2\sqrt x)}{\sqrt x}$
