### Re: differentiate this !

They are in fact the same thing, but stated in different ways.

The composition rule is:

f(x) = g(h(x)), then f'(x) = g'(h(x))*h'(x)

"In the real world, this would be a problem.  But in mathematics, we can just define a place where this problem doesn't exist.  So we'll go ahead and do that now..."
