To differentiate the function ( f(x) = \ln(x^6 + 4) ), we use the chain rule.

The derivative of ( \ln(u) ) with respect to ( x ) is ( \frac{1}{u} \cdot \frac{du}{dx} ), where ( u ) is a function of ( x ).

In this case, let ( u = x^6 + 4 ). So, ( \frac{du}{dx} = 6x^5 ).

Therefore, the derivative of ( f(x) ) is:

[ f'(x) = \frac{1}{x^6 + 4} \cdot 6x^5 ]
