To differentiate ( f(x) = \sec(-e^{\sqrt{x}}) ) using the chain rule, follow these steps:

- Identify the outer function: ( \sec(u) ), where ( u = -e^{\sqrt{x}} ).
- Find the derivative of the outer function: ( \sec(u) ) has the derivative ( \sec(u) \tan(u) ).
- Identify the inner function: ( u = -e^{\sqrt{x}} ).
- Find the derivative of the inner function: ( \frac{du}{dx} = \frac{d}{dx}(-e^{\sqrt{x}}) ).
- Apply the chain rule: ( \frac{d}{dx} \sec(-e^{\sqrt{x}}) = \sec(-e^{\sqrt{x}}) \tan(-e^{\sqrt{x}}) \cdot \frac{d}{dx}(-e^{\sqrt{x}}) ).

So, the differentiation of ( f(x) = \sec(-e^{\sqrt{x}}) ) using the chain rule is ( f'(x) = \sec(-e^{\sqrt{x}}) \tan(-e^{\sqrt{x}}) \cdot \frac{d}{dx}(-e^{\sqrt{x}}) ).

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.
