Function of a Function

Suppose y is a function of z,

           y = f(z)

and z is a function of x,

           z = g(x)

Since, y depends on z, and z in turn depends on x, y is also a function of x.

Thus,  y = f(z)

           = f[g(x)]

The derivative of y with respect to x can be obtained as:

The above method is often used to get the derivative of some complicated functions.
